KPD Focuses on Extra Patrols during Holiday

Killeen Police will be Focusing on Extra Patrols on Independence Day.

The Killeen Police Department will be increasing the number of officers patrolling the streets of Killeen on Tuesday, July 4, 2017, focusing on 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 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 travelers.

If you see a driver you believe to be impaired or driving recklessly, please call 911 with the vehicle’s description, direction of travel and license plate number if possible.
