Troop H Officers To Participate In Special Operations During The 2018 July Fourth Holiday
Captain James E. McDonald, commanding officer of Troop H, St. Joseph, announces Troop H officers will be participating in Operation C.A.R.E. during the 2018 July Fourth holiday. Operation C.A.R.E. (Crash Awareness & Reduction Effort) is a national traffic enforcement program focused on making the holiday safer. During this enforcement operation, all available troopers will be patrolling Missouri highways, aggressively enforcing traffic laws, and assisting motorists with emergency situations. In addition to Operation C.A.R.E., Troop H officers will participate in a special enforcement operation on Tuesday, July 3, 2018, and Wednesday, July 4, 2018. During this operation, which will be conducted on Interstate 35 throughout the Troop H area, troopers will be assigned 20-mile sections of Interstate 35 to provide additional manpower during the peak travel days of the holiday period.
“Many motorists will be traveling over the holiday, and we want everyone traveling on Missouri roadways to be safe,” stated Captain McDonald. “Make sure everyone in your vehicle is properly restrained and never drink and drive.”
The only 100 percent survivable traffic crash is the one that never happens. Make sure everyone in the vehicle is properly restrained in a seat belt or child restraint. Every day as we travel on Missouri’s roadways, we trust that every driver on the road is going to obey the speed limit, pay attention, and drive sober.
“Don’t Violate The Trust.”
