KILGORE (KYTX) - Kilgore Police officers are conducting a STEP wave now through March 16, 2014.
This STEP Wave, funded by a TXDOT grant, will include additional officers on duty to enforce speed limits violations and seek out intoxicated drivers.
The last wave in Kilgore, in December, netted 9 DWI arrests and over 200 speeding citations. These arrests and speeding tickets were in addition to the usual numbers our patrol officers put out regularly.
Police encourage motorist to always drive safe, slow down, and designate a driver if you drink.
