Troop B of the Missouri State Highway Patrol has announced plans to participate in Operation C.A.R.E. and 20-Mile Trooper enforcement programs over the Memorial Day weekend.
During Operation C.A.R.E. (Combined Accident Reduction Effort) every available officer will be on the road enforcing traffic laws and assisting motorists. Operation C.A.R.E. will begin at 12:01 a.m., Friday, May 24, and will end at midnight, Monday, May 27.
Additionally, Troop B officers will be conducting a 20-Mile Trooper Project on U.S. 36, 63, and 61 in the Troop B area on May 24 and May 27. During this enforcement program, troopers will be assigned to 20-mile intervals in an effort to step up traffic enforcement.
