Massachusetts State Police to flood roads with extra patrols

Massachusetts State Police will deploy saturation patrols – extra patrols flooding a specific geographic area – and two more sobriety checkpoints on separate nights this week. The extra deployments will supplement regular patrols that State Police roll around the clock on three daily shifts.

Targeted enforcement operations are deployed on many nights throughout the year; nonetheless, the upcoming operations come on the heels of a tragic weekend on Massachusetts roads. State Police responded to numerous crashes that caused fatal or serious injuries with different suspected contributing factors, including impairment, failure to wear a seatbelt, and wrong-way operation.
