Incoming: Cuyahoga County Sheriff's to deploy Impact Units

19 Action News has just discovered Cuyahoga County Sheriff's will be starting something new that could make your streets safer - especially at a time when we're seeing police layoffs.

We've learned the Sheriff will announce what he calls "Impact Units" small teams of deputies who will go around the county targeting trouble spots. These trouble spots could be a rash of burglaries in one town and robberies in another.

These units will work with the local police in those towns fighting whatever the big problem is--then move on.

More details are expected to be released today.
