OLYMPIA, Wash. – The Washington State Patrol (WSP) and its allied agencies are continuing to conduct High Visibility Enforcement (HiVE) patrols across the state in efforts to reduce serious injury and fatality collisions, as well as deter and interdict crime.

The next two planned HiVE patrols are scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 17, and Saturday, Dec. 31.

HiVE patrols utilize data to determine areas where agency resources will make the largest impact in saving lives. The 24-hour patrols are supplemented with saturation periods during the highest likelihood of collisions and crime.

Previous HiVE patrols held on Nov. 19 and Nov. 26 across the state resulted in 4,796 total contacts, including 95 DUI arrests, 2,303 speed contacts, 85 distracted driver contacts, 98 seatbelt contacts, 13 stolen vehicle recoveries, and 59 drivers with suspended licenses.
