From November 20 – 29, 2020, the Riley County Police Department joined other local and state agencies across Kansas in the Thanksgiving Safe Arrival traffic enforcement campaign. The concentrated effort to aggressively target and remove impaired drivers from our roads was facilitated by the Kansas Department of Transportation.

Over the course of the campaign Riley County Police officers arrested one driver for Driving Under the Influence. A total of 19 speeding citations along with 41 other traffic citations were issued over the course of the campaign.

“We would like to thank the Kansas Department of Transportation for providing the funding for the additional enforcement,” Lieutenant Daryl Ascher said.

The Riley County Police Department will continue to be vigilant in the enforcement of Kansas traffic safety laws during the holiday season and throughout the entirety of the upcoming year.
