CROSS BORDER/ JOINT AGENCY TRAFFIC ENFORCEMENT DETAIL AND SOBRIETY CHECK POINT

On May 25, 2018, between 1600 and 2330 hours, Troopers from the Rutland Barracks participated in a Cross Border/ Joint Agency Traffic Enforcement Detail and Sobriety Check Point.  Vermont State Troopers joined forces with the New York State Police, Washington County Sheriff’s Office and Fairhaven Police Department to conduct a highly visible traffic enforcement detail.

The goal of the operation was to encourage safe driving behavior during the upcoming holiday by focusing on speed enforcement, use of portable electronic devices/ distracted driving laws, proactive criminal enforcement and DUI enforcement.  

While on patrol, Law Enforcement Officers from the above agencies initiated 101 traffic stops, writing 44 tickets and 66 warnings.  1 operator was arrested for DUI, several others were brought through Standard Field Sobriety Tests (SFST’s), but were found to be under the legal limit of .08% BAC.  2 other individuals were arrested for drug offenses. 

During the Sobriety Check Point, Law Enforcement Officers made contact with 122 vehicles.  1 operator was arrested for DUI, several others were brought through standard Field Sobriety Tests (SFST’s), but were found to be under the legal limit of .08% BAC.  Several other motorists were found to have been designated drivers.

The Vermont State Police plan to continue joint traffic enforcement details with other agencies in the future.
