The Idaho State Police is running an “all hands on deck” operation for enhanced patrols on this holiday weekend, with all commissioned officers, even those who usually work behind a desk, hitting the road as the holiday weekend opened July 3.
David Frazier of the Boise Guardian reports that the operation led to something unusual: Col. Ralph Powell, ISP director, wrote his first citation in 11 years. He cited a young driver for inattentive driving, after he zoomed by the state’s top cop doing 70 mph in a 35 mph chip-seal construction zone. Betsy Russell, EOB
