Louisiana State Police Troop I issued 439 citations and recovered
one stolen trailer during "Operation Trailer Hitch." "The operation
targeted unsafe, unregistered, and stolen trailers," Trooper Stephen
State police started the operation after noticing an increase in the
number of trailers with no lighting, improper equipment, no
registration, and unsafe conditions. The Bureau of Investigations also
reported to Troop I an increase in the number of stolen trailers in the
area. "In an effort to make sure the motoring public was safe, and in an
attempt to recover stolen property, troopers from Troop I,
Transportation Environmental Safety Services (TESS), and the Insurance
Fraud Unit looked for trailers with various violations," Hammons said.
During the last few months, troopers reported an increased number of
trailers with no lighting, improper equipment, no registration, and
unsafe conditions. Troop I also received reports from the Bureau of
Investigations about an increased number in stolen trailers in the area.
The operation began at 5:00 a.m., on August 9, 2011, and concluded
Of the 439 citations issued, more than 200 of them were violation
citations. "A violation citation is a citation that does not have a
fine associated with it but, requires the operator to fix the problems
with the trailer and report back to State Police or the Office of Motor
Vehicles to show compliance with the problems found with it," Hammons
Throughout the operation troopers issued the following citations: 219
violation citations, 45 registration violations, 40 equipment
violations, 100 TESS violations, 18 other violations, 17 motor vehicle
violations, 20 trailers towed and one stolen trailer.
While this operation has concluded, troopers and other law
enforcement agencies will continue to look for unsafe, and unregistered
trailers being operated on public roadways within our state, Hammons
said. The purpose of "Operation Trailer Hitch" was to ensure public
safety, raise public awareness, and recover stolen property.
State Police reminds the public that a trailer is considered a
vehicle and is required to have a motor vehicle inspection sticker with
it at all times. Anyone needing information about registering a
trailer, having a trailer stamped or needing a physical inspection for a
trailer or vehicle can call Troop I at 337-262-5880.
