ISP officers are beginning to patrol roads in non-standard police cars.

Indiana State Police are beginning to patrol roads and highways in vehicles other than standard cruisers.  It’s called the “stealth” program.  Officers will be located in high volume crash areas in SUV’s, pickup trucks, and sports cars.  Sergeant Anthony Emory says the goal is to make roadways safer.

“Whenever we do have an officer present out there we do modify driver behavior,” Emory said.  “However, as soon as that officer is no longer in that driver’s site guess what happens?  They’re right back  to driving with that erratic behavior whether it be speeding or lane jockeying that some of us may refer to it as, following too close.”

Emory says he hopes the non-traditional vehicles will encourage motorists to comply with traffic laws more as a habit.
