M. Friday, July 2, and continue for 75 hours until midnight Monday, July 5. William R. Welsh, Executive Director of the Iowa State Sheriffs' Association, said that these men will be actively cooperating with all other law enforcement agencies in an attempt to help Iowa enjoy the safest holiday-ever. There are reports that some sheriffs are planning air patrols in their counties; others have arranged for coffee stops at highway intersections where motorists can stop and rest and meet these officers while enjoying free coffee and doughnuts. Other sheriffs will station their posse members along heavily traveled roads to assist motorists whenever possible. Welsh, a former sheriff, said, "The whole idea is to prevent accidents whenever possible and to help Iowa establish a record for safe driving during this holiday. All of these efforts will be in addition to the sheriffs regular work of maintaining the office and jail for normal county business."
