for help with ‘emphasis patrol’
I wanted to pass this information on to you so you could see what your
folks helped us with this last week. Supervisors Sorenson, Blacketer
and Richardson were instrumental in making this patrol a success. They
allowed your Roving Units to assist ISP in setting-up satellite Ports
of Entry on approved sites. This allowed us to inspect a larger number
of commercial vehicles and afforded us safe areas to do so. POE Officers
also assisted us at Huetter POE and Bonners Ferry POE. As normal, it
was a pleasure working with all ITD Staff involved.
I have attached a copy of the Emphasis Patrol Statistics for this operation.
As I mentioned when we spoke at the East Boise POE, this operation involved
Idaho State Police, Idaho Transportation Department, Montana MCS, Washington
State Patrol, Spokane County, Wash., Spokane City, Wash., Liberty Lake,
Wash., Kootenai County Sheriff's Department, U.S. Border Patrol, U.S.
Customs and Border Protection, U.S. Forrest Service and Transport Canada.
Allied Washington and Montana agencies turned in statistics as well
as Idaho State Police and the R-2 Roving POE.
As you can see, all agencies numbers were very respectable and no doubt
enhanced traffic safety by removing dangerous drivers and vehicles from
