Operation Pull Over starts today

Starting today and running through Sept. 2, officers from the Indiana State Police will participate in the Operation Pull Over, "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" enforcement campaign.

Operation Pull Over is funded by a federal grant through the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute and allows additional police officers to work overtime with an emphasis on locating and arresting impaired drivers.

During the two-week enforcement period, troopers will be conducting sobriety checkpoints and saturation patrols targeting impaired and dangerous drivers. The purpose of the enforcement campaign is to remove impaired drivers from Indiana roadways before they cause needless pain, suffering, or death to innocent victims.

Motorists are encouraged to report suspected impaired drivers by calling 911. Give a vehicle description, location, and direction of travel. Never follow an impaired driver.

The Indiana State Police is committed to traffic safety and will continue to conduct saturation patrols and sobriety checkpoints throughout the year to apprehend impaired drivers and deter others from drinking and driving.
