State, local police join forces for ‘Buckle Up New York, Click It or Ticket’ seatbelt enforcement initiative

New York State Troopers from the Ithaca, Homer and Owego barracks, as well as members of the Tompkins County Sheriff’s Office and the Village of Trumansburg Police Department, joined forces to hold a seatbelt check Tuesday afternoon.
