Several Nevada agencies join forces to target speeders through January 22nd

Several Nevada law enforcement agencies have joined forces to target speeders.

The 20-day enforcement period began Wednesday and lasts until Jan. 22 as part of the multi-jurisdictional Joining Forces program through the Nevada Department of Public Safety’s Office of Traffic Safety. The program is geared toward improving safety through statewide traffic enforcement.

“Don’t expect a break if you get stopped for speeding,” Highway Patrol spokesman Jason Buratczuk said in a statement.

Henderson police will dedicate extra patrols throughout the city, the department said. Officers will target known speeding areas that receive the most complaints. Police in Boulder City will add extra patrols to U.S. Highway 95 and Interstate 11 within city limits during the enforcement period.
