More law enforcement patrol in northern Oxford County

Sheriff Wayne Gallant announced Wednesday that the Oxford County Sheriff’s Office, the Rumford Police Department and the US Border Patrol will be conducting enhanced patrol coverage and several safety check points throughout the northern patrol coverage areas of the county during the month of August.

The majority of the enhanced coverage will be focused in and around the greater Rumford area, according to a press release.  “This area serves a  major transient route for summer travelers in this part of Oxford County. The enhanced police visibility and coverage will help ensure safe travels and hopefully mitigate potential criminal activity,” the release said.
