Extra KPD Officers Patrolling Roadways During Holidays
The Killeen Police Department would like to remind drivers to exercise care during the Holidays and drive safely. Please observe the posted speed limits and being vigilant for children who would not normally be out during the day. The department will have extra patrols that will be on the lookout for speeders and impaired drivers. The extra patrols are a result of the department’s participation in a Texas Department of Transportation funded grant known as the Selective Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP). Officers working with the STEP program will focus on those who are exceeding the posted speed limit and locating and arresting impaired or intoxicated drivers who are presenting a hazardous risk.
It is the goal of this program to prevent potential injuries and loss of life to local drivers and holiday travelers.
The Killeen Police Department would like to wish everyone a Happy Holidays and a Safe New Year.
