EAST CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers will now help East Cleveland police with traffic safety in the city.

According to troopers, the purpose of the collaboration is to bring awareness and education to the motoring public about the dangers of speed, driving impaired, distracted driving, and other leading crash-causing violations, along with the importance of safety belt usage, in an effort to reduce injuries and traffic fatalities

“Police departments around the state have challenges with resources, particularly manpower, and I am sure the Ohio State Highway Patrol is no different,” said Brandon L. King, Mayor of East Cleveland. “This collaboration is a demonstration of the state’s commitment to assisting cities throughout the state even when resources are not at optimal levels.”

The citywide initiative begins Monday, March 20 with a tentative end date of Monday, May 1.
