Berrien Sheriff’s Department Taking Part In “Operation Safe Stop”

Berrien County Sheriff’s deputies will take part in “Operation Safe Stop” from October 19th through the 23rd. Their enforcement efforts will be in and around school bus pick-up and drop-off locations and speed zones near schools. They are teaming with the Office of Highway Safety Planning and other police for the campaign. Passing a stopped school bus can result in a fine between $100 and $500 and include up to 100 hours of community service at a school. If someone passes a bus and causes a death, that brings up to 15 years in prison.
