Early Thanksgiving Traffic Enforcement Effort Dedicated In Memory Of Fallen Trooper

Illinois State Police will be getting an early start on this year’s Thanksgiving holiday enforcement action, in memory of a state trooper who died in the line of duty one year ago this week. 


“Operation Kyle” is named for Trooper Kyle Deatherage, who was killed when he was struck by a semi while conducting a traffic stop on Interstate 55 south of Springfield.  State police say all sworn troopers will take part in the 24-hour enforcement action Tuesday and Wednesday... with an “aggressive” emphasis on DUI and other risky behaviors by drivers. 


Heightened patrols will continue through the end of the holiday driving period on Sunday.
