Marysville Police Participate in Special Enforcement

 

Marysville Police Department will be one of dozens of law enforcement agencies participating in a special traffic enforcement program this holiday weekend.  The S.T.E.P. awards grants to participating Kansas law enforcement agencies to increase education and enforcement efforts directed at compliance with Kansas safety belt, child passenger safety, and impaired driving laws. Enforcement is accomplished through funding of four annual overtime-only campaigns – also called mobilizations and enforcements – consisting mostly of saturation patrols and optional checkpoints

 

Over the Thanksgiving weekend Kansas averages 738 accidents, 167 injury accidents, and 4 fatality accidents.  On average 73 accidents involve alcohol including 50 percent of all fatalities
