The Okmulgee County Sheriff's Office is conducting crime deterrent directed patrols throughout the county.

Officials say these extra crime prevention efforts started at the beginning of December and will continue till the end of the year. Deputies from the agency's Special Operations Team and Investigations units will staff these proactive patrols.
