6-State Trooper Project Nets 572 DUI Arrests

state trooper project 300FRANKFORT, Ky (12/17/13) - Five hundred seventy-two DUI arrests were made in a three-day, multi-agency enforcement campaign called the 6 State Trooper Project. The Kentucky State Police (KSP) joined forces with Michigan, Ohio, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Indiana state police agencies on major interstates December 6-8, 2013 in an ongoing effort to combat impaired driving.

KSP Lt. Col. Jack Miniard says the effort was impacted by a nationwide winter storm that occurred during the enforcement period.

"Even with this major winter storm affecting our enforcement region, we were still able to remove 572 impaired drivers from our highways," says Miniard. "That number indicates the selfish character of these individuals who choose to drive impaired during a time when road conditions are already hazardous."

"Successful multi-agency enforcement efforts illustrate the collective power of making our roadways safer for everyone," adds Miniard. "We are able to share resources and information that assist this six-state region in developing targeted campaigns in areas where impaired driving is most prevalent."
