On Thursday, May 25th, members of the Garrettsville Police Department visited the James A. Garfield Local Schools’ campus in an effort to keep kids safe as a part of the “Click it or Ticket” program. With the help of free Dairy Queen ice cream certificates donated by Roger and Connie Angel, the officers set up in the high school parking lot just before dismissal. They formed two lines and checked each vehicle leaving the campus to ensure all riders had their seatbelt buckled. Of the 132 cars checked, 115 had their seatbelt buckled! This equated to 87% which is above the national average of 85%.
The James A. Garfield Local Schools would like to thank all the members of the Garrettsville Police Department who participated. We are fortunate to have such a strong relationship with our local law enforcement.
