KPD Focusing on Extra Patrols for the Holiday

Killeen Police Focusing on Extra Patrols this Labor Day Holiday.

The Killeen Police Department will have extra patrols starting on Friday, September 1, 2017, throughout the Labor Day weekend 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.
