trafficstop

An interagency safety checkpoint Saturday night proved fruitful for local law enforcement.

To keep community roads safer, Saturday evening, officers with Barbourville Police Department and troopers with Kentucky State Police worked together to set up a roadblock on U.S. 25E. 

The agencies blocked traffic traveling north and south, and vehicles turning onto U.S. 25E from North Ky. 11.

During the roadblock, officers issued 107 citations, 13 child restraint/booster seat violations, 12 no seatbelt violations, one DUI (driving under the influence) violation, 13 arrests and two drug-related arrests.
