CLEVELAND COUNTY, Oklahoma -

Cleveland county deputies are cracking down on speeders and burglars in two separate target zones.

One near Indian Hills and Harrah Rd. The other near Slaughterville.

They've been identified as higher crime areas, and the Cleveland County Sheriff's Office wants to team up with those working and living in those communities to do something about it.

One of those areas deputies will be patrolling is near the Pecan Valley Junction off 192nd and Indian Hills Rd., also very close to the location where the May 19th tornado ripped through.

Bobbie Steely has a clear view of all the people who come in and out of her convenience store.

She's seen her share of speeders and is glad the Cleveland County Sheriff's Office will now be providing an extra set of eyes.

"We've got kids out here," said Steely. "We've got people out here trying to rebuild their homes, and they come back and have half their stuff gone, so I think it will be great."

Arthur McDow has lived in this area for 17 years and is also glad deputies will be increasing their patrols.

"I love it, I love it," said McDow. "They need more deputies out here!"

Deputies will also be increasing their presence along a mile stretch near Slaughterville, located near 156th and Etowah Rd.

This is the location where the Twelve Corners Cafe will soon be opening its doors, and the mom and pop behind this shop are thrilled.

"That's great, because it's always in the back of our minds, 'will someone try to break in'." said Twelve Corners Cafe Owner Janet Rich. "We don't want to get robbed right off the bat."

At the Pecan Valley Junction convenience store, it's back to a long day's work. This time they have the knowledge that deputies will soon be around to help keep a watchful eye on things.

"I come in at five in the morning," said Steely. "We don't leave until 10 p.m. It's good to have someone around when we are up here like that."

Deputies will begin meeting with residents and business owners out in those target zones over the next couple of weeks.
