The 2017 NYS Highway Safety Symposium was held in beautiful Niagara Falls!  We welcomed over 250 partners in Highway Safety for three days of seminars and networking.


The Niagara County Sheriff’s Office in conjunction with Niagara County STOP-DWI, Niagara County Office of Traffic Safety, New York State Police, Lockport Police Department, and Cornell Cooperative Extension of Niagara County are pleased to announce May 18th as media day for the 21st annual Niagara County Traffic Safety Fair.

The Niagara County Traffic Safety Fair is an event hosted by community partners such as New York State Governors Traffic Safety Committee, New York State Department of Transportation, Niagara International Transportation Technology Coalition (NITTEC), Northpointe Council, and Mercy Flight of Western New York with the goal of raising awareness of drinking and distracted driving, and driver safety.

Multiple events are planned for the students such as watching a short movie on drinking and driving, listening to a Victim Impact Speaker relating to a tragedy involving drinking and driving and distracted driving, presentations from the participating agencies concerning different safety issues such as wearing a seatbelt, texting while driving, etc. The students will also participate in various activities wearing goggles that simulate intoxication. A new addition to the Traffic Safety Fair will be the Niagara County Sheriff's Office Driving Simulator.

This year’s event runs from May 10th-May 19th with approximately 2800 students from across four counties participating in the event.


Niagara County Sheriff James R. Voutour was the keynote speaker on January 8, 2016 at the Police Youth and Community Relations Seminar held at Niagara County Community College. Area high school students participated in multiple breakout sessions throughout the day. One of the topics students could choose to attend was “Alcohol and the Law” presented by members of the Niagara County Sheriff’s Office.

This event was sponsored by the Niagara County Sheriff’s Office and Niagara County Youth Bureau.
