Ohio Patrol to Train Drivers to See Signs of Crime
GROVE CITY, Ohio (AP) -- The State Highway Patrol is renewing efforts to train truckers and other drivers to spot signs of crime, acting as extra sets of eyes and ears to monitor for safety threats during their everyday travels. Troopers kicked off a new program in late May to educate commercial truck drivers about identifying and reporting impaired driving, human trafficking, homeland security concerns and other criminal activity. By late summer, the patrol hopes to provide similar information for residents through various patrol posts. The tips were well-received by a group of Wal-Mart truck drivers at a program kickoff at a distribution center in Grove City. Ohio Trucking Association President Larry Davis says a similar, federally funded program ended several years ago, and the new state effort helps fill the gap in training.
