(Selective Traffic Enforcement Program) operation in Columbia, Suwannee, and Hamilton Counties in an effort to decrease crashes, injuries, and fatalities.

The operation was very successful, resulting in over 500 citations issued, including four active warrants and the seizure of $35,000 in contraband.

Lake City District Commander Captain Tim Culhane was very pleased with this team effort to make the roads in these communities a safer place to travel. Great job FHP!
