Operation Pull Over Campaign to Begin May 20th

The Indiana State Police, including the Lowell District troopers that cover Starke, Pulaski, Lake, Porter, Newton and Jasper Counties, will be joining 250 other law enforcement agencies in the state in an effort to reduce injuries and fatalities by participating in the Operation Pull Over, Blitz 67, “Click it or Ticket” campaign. Troopers are able to perform extra patrols during the Memorial Day holiday travel period thanks to federal funds.

This patrol will begin May 20th and end June 5th with an emphasis on seat belt use. Indiana State Police will also be participating in the Operation Combined Accident Reduction Effort which is a federally funded program to allow additional troopers to patrol for drivers who speed, follow too closely, make unsafe lane changes, drive aggressively, fail to wear a seat belt or properly restrain children in child seats, and operate a vehicle while impaired.
