The Indiana State Police will be joining forces with five other state police agencies in the Six State Trooper project this week. The enforcement campaign will combine efforts on marijuana eradication and highway patrols targeting the movement of marijuana. Michigan State Police, Ohio Highway patrol, Kentucky State Police, Pennsylvania State Police and West Virginia State Police are also participating.
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 September 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.
