Click It or Ticket campaign begins

Officers from the Sheboygan County Sheriff’s Department, Cascade Police, Plymouth Police, Elkhart Lake Police and the Sheboygan Police Department will mobilize along with hundreds of other law enforcement agencies throughout Wisconsin for the annual Click It or Ticket safety belt enforcement campaign from May 19 to June 1.

“Our officers will be on the lookout day and night for unbuckled motorists. If you’re not wearing a safety belt, we will stop your vehicle and you will get a ticket,” said Chief Michael Meeusen in a press release announcing the campaign. “During the Click It or Ticket mobilization and throughout the year, we will stringently enforce Wisconsin’s mandatory safety belt law. We’re not trying to write more tickets. Through enforcement and education, we’re striving to get people to buckle up every time they drive or ride in a vehicle.”

In Wisconsin, approximately one out of five motorists does not buckle up, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation. More than half of the drivers and passengers killed in Wisconsin traffic crashes in 2013 were not wearing safety belts. Last year, there were more than 70,000 convictions for failure to fasten a seat belt.

“Consistent safety belt use is the most effective protection against being ejected from a vehicle during a crash or thrown around violently inside it and possibly hitting another person in the vehicle with massive force,” Sheriff Todd Priebe said in the same press release. “Our officers are serious about safety belt enforcement because we’re determined to reach the goal of zero preventable traffic deaths in Wisconsin.”

Sex offender website updated

The Wisconsin Department of Corrections has launched changes to the Sex Offender Registry website which enhances the public’s ability to locate registered sex offenders.

Since 2001, the public has had the ability to search the Sex Offender Registry website by name or zip code. The new website includes a geographic search capability for sex offender registrants that live within a 1, 2 or 3 mile radius of a specific address.

“The enhanced website helps strengthen community protection by giving citizens additional tools to keep their families safe,” said DOC Secretary Ed Wall in a press release announcing the change.

Additionally, the new website provides a community notification system, so a user can be notified by e-mail when a sex offender registrant provides a home address that is near an address of interest to the user.

To visit the Wisconsin Sex Offender Registry website, go to: http:// offender.doc.state.wi.us/public/.
