From Local Sources
JASPER — The Jasper Police Department has released totals from extra patrols that focused on impaired and aggressive driving during the St. Patrick’s Day/March Madness season.
Over 24 days, according to Assistant Chief Aaron Persohn, Jasper officers worked 52 hours of overtime and made 136 traffic stops.
Officers issued 157 written warnings and 18 traffic tickets during the traffic-enforcement mobilization, making one warrant arrest in the process.
Jasper officers also joined Indiana State Police troopers from the Jasper Post and other officers from the Dubois County Sheriff’s Office, Huntingburg Police Department and Ferdinand Police Department for a sobriety checkpoint Friday, March 22, in Jasper.
Persohn said his department’s overtime traffic enforcement was funded through National Highway Traffic Safety Administration grants administered by the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute.
