Hundreds of state and local law enforcement agencies were recently honored at the 16th Annual Operation Pull Over Awards Banquet at the Ritz Charles in Carmel, Indiana. The Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office was among those agencies honored, taking home the award for Operation Pull Over, OPO Small Sheriff’s Department. The Sheriff’s Office also received a $1,000 Equipment Award to be used for the purchase of law enforcement equipment of their choice. The Sheriff’s Office has received awards in three of the past four years of participation in the Operation Pull Over Enforcement Programs.
Efforts conducted through Operation Pull Over rely on a dual strategy involving high-visibility enforcement and heightened public awareness aimed at deterring impaired and dangerous driving and increasing seat belt use.
