State Police to Participate in Multi-State Initiative to Target Illegal Narcotics and Weapons

HARRISBURG, Pa. – The Pennsylvania State Police will be participating in a combined enforcement effort with other state police agencies to target illegal narcotics and illegal weapons.

This combined initiative, known as the 6-State Trooper Project, will run from Thursday, March 5, through Saturday, March 7. In addition to the Pennsylvania State Police, other participating agencies will be the Ohio State Highway Patrol, Kentucky State Police, Indiana State Police, West Virginia State Police, and the Michigan State Police.

In 2014, the Pennsylvania State Police seized over $107 million in prohibited drugs.

This figure nearly doubles the amount seized in 2013.

The project is a multi-state law enforcement partnership aimed at providing combined and coordinated law enforcement efforts in the areas of highway safety, criminal patrol, and intelligence sharing.
