The Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office has a new tool to help in reducing the county’s DUI fatality rate, the highest per capita in the state. Sheriff Jim Matthews applied for a grant through the federal Office of Highway Safety and learned last week from the S.C. Department of Public Safety that the grant was approved. Funding from this grant in the amount of $189,589 will pay for two full-time DUI enforcement officers, two patrol cars, fuel, equipment and training.
