Traffic enforcement operation proves fruitful

by Kathleen Coyle

Grant funds from the Highway Safety Bureau enabled Carlisle Police to conduct a traffic enforcement operation on September 1 that resulted in 21 vehicle stops, 11 citations, and three arrests, according to Carlisle Police Officer Andy Booth. Booth said the September 1 operation was the last of several in the periods of activity funded by a grant, which essentially provided money for 20 hours of police officer activity for traffic enforcement. Booth said two of the arrests were for operating under the influence of alcohol and the third for a minor in posession of a controlled substance as a passenger in one of the stopped vehicles.

Booth considered the enforcement operation successful and said he intends to put in for similar grant monies in the future.
