On June 28, 2019, the Tompkins County Sheriff's Office participated in a joint detail focused on Commercial Motor Vehicle enforcement. Multiple teams were stationed throughout Tompkins County with the intention to focus on vehicles used for transporting goods or paying passengers.

During this detail, 31 trucks were inspected and documented. Total violations reached 151, which included violations for logbooks, hazardous materials, medical cards, licensing, oversized/over length vehicles, load securement issues and possession of illicit drugs within the commercial motor vehicle.

Out of those 151 violations, 36 were significant enough to place the driver or vehicle "out-of- service". A total of 7 drivers and 16 vehicles were placed "out-of-service". Sheriff's Office Deputies issued 30 tickets and the NYS Police issued 2 tickets.

"Thank you to all of the participating agencies for helping to make this detail seamless and successful. It is an important reminder for the commercial vehicles out on the road that they are responsible for, not only their own safety on the road, but other people's safety as well", says Sheriff Osborne.

The Sheriff's Office, New York State Police, NYS DOT and ENCON were the agencies participating in the detail.
