Law enforcement agencies in 5 states (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and Tennessee) ready for third annual ‘Operation Southern Shield’

The Georgia State Patrol (GSP) and local law enforcement agencies are gearing up for the third annual “Operation Southern Shield” speed enforcement campaign, that will take place in five southeastern states from July 15 to 21.

The GSP says law enforcement officers in Georgia, Alabama, Florida, South Carolina, and Tennessee are joining forces on interstates and other major highways to target drivers who endanger the safety of others on the road by driving at speeds that are well above the legally posted limit.
