The Operation Pull Over Enforcement grant promotes a coordinated effort to improve occupant protection strategies, and reduce fatality and injuries related to seat belt usage and impaired driving.
The Operation Pull Over (OPO) Enforcement Program is the primary seat belt enforcement program in Indiana. This program is intended to increase seat belt usage and overall occupant protection for motorists in Indiana. Operation Pull Over includes four active enforcement mobilization quarters. Two state mobilizations are Safe Family Travels (November) and Dangerous Driving Enforcement (DDE) (March), and two national mobilizations are Click It or Ticket (May) and Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over (August).
The Michigan City Police Department is operating OPO within the city limits to examine trends, specify desired outcomes, and consider how to monitor them over time. Outcome-based initiatives with performance results or performance indicators that include short-term and long-term goals are being applied. MCPD is observing trends and using this information to establish annual and long-range targets, and provide a rationalization for identified targets.
