Authorities in Franklin launched an aggressive campaign this month to increase motor vehicle safety.
Dubbed “Safe Streets,” the multi-agency campaign was held from Aug. 16-19 and was spearheaded by the Franklin Police Department. The operation yielded several arrests and citations, as officers aggressively sought speeders, reckless and drunk drivers.
Nineteen officers from several jurisdictions participated in the Safe Streets campaign, including officers from the Franklin Police Department, Macon and Jackson County Sheriff’s Offices, the State Highway Patrol and the Highlands Police Department. Officers set up roadblocks in and around Franklin city limits.
