The Indiana State Police will be joining forces with five other state police agencies in the Six State Trooper Project.
Officials say the project is a multi-state enforcement campaign designed to coordinate and combine patrol efforts focused on marijuana interdiction, eradication, and criminal patrol. It fosters partnerships between state police agencies while providing the public additional services in a high-visibility, criminal patrol and enforcement effort.
The Indiana State Police will be participating in this effort statewide. Indiana State Police Superintendent Doug Carter commented, "The Indiana State Police welcome the opportunity to partner with neighboring state police and highway patrol agencies as part of our continued commitment to highway safety and criminal interdiction efforts."
The four day, multi-state operation is scheduled for Sept. 26-29 and the focus of the enforcement efforts will be on criminal patrol and highway interdiction targeting the movement of marijuana and other illegal substances throughout Indiana and the five other participating states.
Other agencies involved in this partnership include Michigan State Police, Ohio Highway Patrol, Kentucky State Police, Pennsylvania State Police and West Virginia State Police.
