The Fort Bragg Police Department is excited for the return of students to the various campuses around Fort Bragg and will be resuming their typical school patrol routines. This means you can expect to see an increased police presence conducting traffic enforcement around the schools during drop-off and pick-up times.

The Police Department would like to remind the public the speed limit is 15 miles per hour in a school zone when children are present. Schools zones often extend up to one block past school property and are typically marked with a sign indicating the decreased speed limit, and by crosswalks being yellow instead of white.

This year the Police Department will also be deploying a traffic enforcement officer with a Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) device around the schools for increased traffic enforcement capabilities.

I like to think of myself as a reporter for the Average Joe. Journalism has become a craft defined largely by city dwellers on America's coasts. It’s time to take it back. I have been an Emerald Triangle resident since 2006 and this is year ten in Mendocino County. Please, email me at matthewplafever@gmail.com if you know a story that needs to be told.
