District 19 Commander, Captain Morrie Fraser, announced today activity and enforcement figures for the month of June. Troopers in District 19, which includes Wabash, Edwards, Wayne, White, Hamilton, Saline, and Gallatin Counties, answered 485 calls for service and initiated 1,283 incidents in the field during the month of June.
In addition, enforcement figures totaled 341 speeding citations, 8 DUIs, 120 seatbelt citations, 8 child restraint citations, 298 written warnings for speeding, and 27 criminal arrests. Troopers also assisted 98 motorists, conducted 130 Motor Carrier Inspections, and investigated 61 traffic crashes. There were no fatal traffic crashes investigated by District 19 during June.
“Even though traffic crash fatalities are down in District 19 compared to last year at this time, traffic crash fatalities statewide are higher than they were last year,” Fraser said. “ With this mind, District 19 Troopers will continue to aggressively enforce the ‘Fatal Four’ violations, those violations most associated with fatal traffic crashes and include Speeding, DUI, Failure to Wear a Seatbelt, and Distracted Driving.”
During the month of June, District 19 Troopers issued 496 citations and 370 written warnings for “Fatal Four” violations.
