Law enforcement officers from around Marion County will be out in extra force this weekend for the St. Patrick’s Day holiday. This weekend is a Special Traffic Enforcement Program weekend. The Governor’s Traffic Safety Bureau provides funding to law enforcement agencies to pay for overtime hours during holiday weekends. The program calls for heightened traffic enforcement for all traffic violations, especially seat belt violations and drinking and driving. Law enforcement throughout Marion County will have extra officers on the road throughout the weekend.
