Police increase patrols for Great Valley Regatta

GREAT VALLEY, N.Y. (WIVB) – The Cattaraugus County Sheriff’s Office is cracking down on crime at an annual tradition.

Deputies say they will have a zero tolerance policy with people who break the law at this year’s Great Valley Regatta. This includes illegal parking on Klawitter Road, Kill Buck Road, and Rt. 219; underage drinking; DWIs; ATV traffic on public roadways; illegal drug use; trespassing in camping areas and boat thefts.

“We’re trying to send a message out to everybody that if you’re planning on coming to the Regatta. We sure hope that you come prepared to be responsible. And have a lot of fun. The emphasis will be on responsible. If there are people that are contributing to underage drinking, they’re going to be arrested,” said the sheriff’s office.

Extra patrols and details will be out in force during the Regatta enforcing this crackdown.

The Great Valley Regatta is taking place from May 2 to 3 this year.
