KILLEEN, TX — The Killeen Police Department will be increasing the number of officers patrolling the streets of Killeen during both the Christmas and New Year holidays. Due to the expected increase in traffic and the associated traffic accidents that are normally experienced during this time of year, the officers will be focusing on speed enforcement and locating and arresting impaired drivers who are presenting a hazardous risk. It is the officers’ goal to remove impaired drivers from the roadways and prevent potential injuries and loss of life to local drivers and holiday travelers.
Drivers are encouraged to observe the posted speed limits and to avoid drinking and driving for their own safety and the safety of others.
