September Speed Enforcement - September 23rd to 25th

Updated:
GALENA, KANSAS -

Beginning September 23rd thru September 25th, The Galena Police Department will join other Law Enforcement agencies in Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska Arkansas, Missouri and Oklahoma to stop what has been an epidemic for the past several years. That’s increased speeding on our streets and highways.

In an effort to change this trend, law enforcement across the six-state area will be extra-vigilant when patrolling around city, rural state and federal highways. As speed increase the severity of crashes increase including deaths, officers have educated and warned passengers and drivers regarding the importance of slowing down, using restraints and not driving while impaired.

There should be no surprises when it comes to this enforcement effort. Officers will issue citations to any individual who refuses to obey the traffic laws, whether it is for speeding, texting, driving while impaired or failing to buckle up.

Chief Charles says, “Even one death is unacceptable. Please slow down, put the phone away or turn it off, and always buckle up.”
