The Dayton Police Department has begun a crackdown on traffic violations in the I-75 construction zone through downtown.  The stepped up enforcement efforts will run through September during periods of heavy traffic.

Police say they’ll be on the lookout for speed, lane change, and tailgating violations.  They’ll also be on the lookout for aggressive drivers.

No warnings will be issued and so motorists need to know the law, according to Sergeant John Ross with the Dayton PD.

The Dayton Police Department has released more information about the death of 45-year-old Terry Darnell Heath, who was killed during a confrontation with police on Monday night.

Around 10pm Monday, police responded to a report of an argument and stabbing in the 2300 block of Wyoming Street. They found one of the men involved in that altercation, John Hagen, who was taken to Miami Valley Hospital where he was reported to be in stable condition.

Update at 3:00pm: One person was injured in a shooting at the Dayton VA Medical Center earlier today, and a suspect is in custody, according to the Dayton Police Department. The shooting took place around noon in the basement of the the VA Clinic and the VA has been on lockdown since just after police were alerted around 12:15pm.

More than 300 law enforcement professionals from across the United States and several other countries are expected to attend a problem-oriented policing conference in southwest Ohio.

The annual conference that runs from Monday through Wednesday focuses on problem-oriented policing as a key means of fighting crime in communities. The policing method centers on crime prevention efforts that involve the community, the private sector and other public agencies.

A delegation of eight officials from Ukraine will be among the participants at the meeting.
