Emphasis patrols targeting ‘high-risk behaviors’ on SR-7 corridor set to begin Monday

Law enforcement from across the South Sound will be conducting emphasis patrols on State Route 7 beginning Monday, according to the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department.

Along with PCSD, the Washington State Patrol and the Lakewood and Puyallup police departments will be participating in the patrols on the Pacific Avenue/Mountain Highway Corridor.

Officers will be targeting “high-risk behaviors” along the highway as part of law enforcement’s continued efforts to prevent collisions and reduce traffic-related injuries and deaths in the area.

The patrols are funded by a grant from the Washington Traffic Safety Commission.
