Columbus - The Ohio State Highway Patrol and other members of the 6-State Trooper Project collaborated to remove drugs and illegal weapons from our communities. This initiative began on Thursday, March 7 at 12:01 a.m. and ended on Saturday, March 9 at 11:59 p.m. The high-visibility enforcement included the Indiana State Police, Kentucky State Police, Michigan State Police, Pennsylvania State Police, West Virginia State Police and OSHP.
During the 6-State project, OSHP made 13 weapon arrests and 242 drug arrests.
“The Patrol remains vigilant in stopping drugs and illegal weapons from being on our roadways,” said Colonel Paul A. Pride, Patrol superintendent. “By partnering with our neighboring states, we are making the roads into and out of Ohio, as well as in our communities, safer for everyone.”
The 6-State Trooper Project is a multi-state law enforcement partnership aimed at providing combined and coordinated law enforcement and security services in the areas of highway safety, criminal patrol and intelligence sharing.
