Members of the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Services Unit will next week be participating in a statewide safety campaign focused on promoting safe driving. Operation Southern Shield, spearheaded by the SC Office of Highway Safety and Justice Programs, will take place from July 19th to July 25th.
The Sheriff’s Office will join other agencies in the state in an effort to reduce speeding violations in their respective jurisdictions.
“We hope that our presence will reduce the number of speeders so that we have less crashes and safer roadways.," Sheriff Al Cannon said. "Summer months are busy travel times, so we want to work with our community to make this the safest year for Charleston County.”
