Results in from State Patrol's special enforcement effort in Northeast Nebraska
NORFOLK - Nebraska State Patrol Troop B has released the results of its recent two-month special enforcement effort.
According to a news release, the special enforcement effort ran from mid-July through mid-September and included alcohol and tobacco compliance checks, high visibility patrols, and vehicle checkpoints in Burt, Cuming, Madison, and Stanton Counties in an effort to reduce the potential for serious injury and fatality crashes.
During the effort, troopers made 3 arrests for Driving Under the Influence and issued 10 citations and warnings related to speeding, Driving During Suspension, and Careless Driving.
In addition to the Patrol Division activities, criminal investigators conducted 71 compliance checks. These checks resulted in 7 businesses being cited for non-compliance.
The two month special enforcement was helped by a grant from the Healthy Communities Initiative (HCI).
The release also included a statement: “We want to thank the Elkhorn Logan Valley Public Health Department and the Healthy Communities Initiative for partnering with us on this enforcement effort,” said Lieutenant Jim Bills, Patrol Division, Troop B- Norfolk. “By making our troopers visible and available we hope to gain voluntary compliance with all traffic safety laws and in turn make our roadways safe for everyone.”
