North Carolina Police Targeting School Zone Violations

Police in North Carolina’s Guilford County are playing their part in stopping various school zone violations.

According to WFMY News 2 in Greensboro, N.C.:

The initiative is called “Operation School Watch.” Police officers and sheriff’s deputies are using both marked and unmarked law enforcement vehicles to look for people who fail to stop for stop arms, speed in school zones, fail to buckle up or blow through school zone cross walks.

Greensboro Police Officer J. Brian Price told WFMY News 2 that day one of “Operation School Watch” was effective, with multiple people ticketed for speeding and other violations.

Meanwhile, the schools in Guilford County are doing their part to catch violators.

Guilford County Schools transportation director Jeff Harris said Guilford County Schools is also attempting to increase the district’s effort to catch violators. GCS has installed five camera systems, valued at $3,000 each. Harris said ultimately, the district would like to install cameras in all of the 609 buses, but that effort would be cost more than one million dollars.
