Local law enforcement: Don’t call 911 about curfew
Several local law enforcement agencies have said they don’t want residents to call 911 over violations of Ohio’s new coronavirus curfew, which begins today. In Montgomery County, the sheriff’s office said the order is a Department of Health-related order and deputies would not actively search for people not complying, while Dayton police said they expected voluntary compliance with these orders, and would only take enforcement actions if there are egregious or repeat violations.
