ISP to have sobriety checkpoints

Friday, June 29, 2012

The Indiana State Police will be joining forces with other members for the 6-State Trooper Project for a DUI enforcement initiative June 29-30 in an effort to reduce DUI related fatal and injury crashes.

This high-visibility enforcement effort will include the Indiana State Police, Kentucky State Police, Ohio State Highway Patrol, Pennsylvania State Police, Michigan State Police and the West Virginia State Police.

Troopers in Indiana will focus on high DUI related crash rates and causation factors and will utilize sobriety checkpoints and high-visibility saturation patrols in an effort to deter impaired driving.

Last year, 102 DUI related fatal crashes killed 108 people on Hoosier highways.

"We are steadfast in our commitment to minimize the number of crashes that injure and kill people on our roadways and will use all tools and enforcement methods at our disposal to stop such needless tragedies," Indiana State Police Superintendent Paul Whitesell, PHD said.

The 6-State Trooper Project is a multi-state law enforcement partnership aimed at providing combined and coordinated law enforcement and security services in the areas of highway safety, criminal patrol and intelligence sharing.
