72-Hour Enforcement Blitz in Six States Set to Begin
Greencastle, IN – The Indiana State Police (ISP) announced on Wednesday it will be teaming up with five other States in a collective effort to “catch criminals” traveling on roadways.
Dubbed the “Six-State Trooper Project,” State Police in Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia will take to the highways on Thursday, March 11 through Saturday, March 13, “with a primary focus on criminal interdiction through high volume traffic enforcement.”
ISP said during the 72-hour blitz, motorists in the six states can expect to see an increased presence of State Troopers conducting roadside traffic stops.
The Six-State Trooper Project was born with the understanding “that the criminal element by and large operates in a mobile environment,” ISP explained.
The States believe the collective effort casts a wider net “for law enforcement to work.”
“We achieve safer roadways through increased traffic enforcement, with an overall commitment to creating safer communities by getting criminals off the streets,” ISP stated.
State Police encouraged motorists to not drive distracted, be increasingly aware of the need to move over or slow down as required by State law, and to give troopers the room to work safely.
Additionally, motorists that observe high-risk driving behavior, suspect impaired driving, or suspect criminal activity on our roadways, are always encouraged to call 9-1-1.
