From Local Sources
HUNTINGBURG — The Huntingburg Police Department has released totals from extra patrols that focused on impaired and aggressive driving during the St. Patrick’s Day/March Madness season.
During 24 days, according to Assistant Chief Brad Kramer, Huntingburg officers worked almost 54 hours of overtime, issued 152 written warnings and wrote 14 traffic tickets.
Huntingburg police also made three arrests during those contacts on charges that included operating while intoxicated, driving while classified as a habitual traffic violator, minor consuming, theft and driving while suspended. Kramer noted the individuals were charged with multiple offenses.
Huntingburg officers also joined Indiana State Police troopers from the Jasper Post and other officers from the Dubois County Sheriff’s Office, Jasper Police Department and Ferdinand Police Department for a sobriety checkpoint March 22 in Jasper.
Kramer said his department’s overtime traffic enforcement was funded through National Highway Traffic Safety Administration grants administered by the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute.
