November Meant More Tickets, Arrests for State Police

Posted by wlpo on December 12, 2016

There were more people on the roads last month thanks to the Thanksgiving holiday. That meant state police were also much busier.

According to the latest numbers released, State Troopers with District 17 gave out 625 tickets in November, more than double the 286 they issued in October. There were also 13 alcohol-related arrests last month compared to 8 the month before.

Other criminal activity stayed constant. For the second straight month, 25 people were arrested by state troopers for criminal offenses.

Unfortunately, troopers had to handle 50 crashes in LaSalle, Bureau, and Putnam County in October. The good news is that none of those crashes were fatal, but it was the second straight month that number had gone up.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
