Washington County Sheriff's Department deputies soon will be able to issue electronic traffic citations. A state grant approved Tuesday by the Washington County Commissioners will allow the sheriff's department to buy scanners and printers for police vehicles. That equipment will be used to scan license and registration information and print citations electronically. Washington County Sheriff Douglas Mullendore said officers no longer will have to write out citations. "It's going to save a lot of time, both for officers and violators," Mullendore said.
