CSP State Wide Saturation Patrol Statistics Report

Starting at 6PM on Friday the 17th of April and continuing until 2AM on Monday the 20th of April, the Colorado State Patrol was out in force across the state. Approximately 600 troopers, from the Chief down to the newest CSP graduate were working shifts throughout the period. Over 100 CSP port of entry officers worked at the ports of entry as well as mobile inspection stations around the state. The reason for this enforcement was to work towards the goal of zero traffic related deaths on our roads. This is in conjunction with the Toward Zero Death® national campaign. Although this saturation patrol was at a time many in Colorado were focusing on marijuana, the Colorado State Patrol was focused on Zero Tolerance for ANY Dangerous Driving Behavior with the goal of Zero Traffic Related Fatalities. (#ZeroZero) Marijuana specific data will be tabulated consistent with our quarterly reporting guidelines.
