Cattaraugus County sheriff takes ‘no tolerance” policy on regatta issues

LITTLE VALLEY – With the Great Valley Regatta underway Friday and Saturday, Cattaraugus County Sheriff Timothy S. Whitcomb stressed Wednesday that he and his agency will have a “no tolerance” policy in effect for a number of concerns raised by event organizers and county residents about areas of the Regatta course.

The sheriff said he will have extra traffic enforcement patrols and an underage drinking patrol on duty during the Regatta to deal with illegal parking on Klawitter Road, Kill Buck Road and Route 219, along with underage drinking driving while intoxicated vehicle cases, ATV traffic on public roadways, illegal drug use, trespassing in camping areas and boat thefts. He said security details from his department will be on foot patrol in the campgrounds and pit stop areas and at the boat drop off area.

“The Cattaraugus County Sheriff’s Office encourages people to have a fun, safe weekend and asks that minors be attended at the event by a responsible adult,” Sheriff Whitcomb said.
