Results From the 2014 Thanksgiving Mobilization Campaign

From November 24th through the 30th, members of the Overland Park Police Department hit the roadways to conduct enforcement for the Thanksgiving Mobilization S.T.E.P. (Special Traffic Enforcement Program) Campaign.

This yearly campaign is funded through a grant from the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT). The enforcement effort specifically targets impaired drivers as well as vehicle occupants who are not properly restrained. Officers also looked for child passenger seat violations, speeding, texting while driving, and other alcohol related arrests in an effort to reduce alcohol related auto accidents.
