The PA Law Enforcement Liaisons (LEL) are a vital link between the PA State Highway Safety Office and law enforcement agencies across Pennsylvania.  Each LEL is assigned to a specific region of the Commonwealth to help promote and enhance state and national highway safety programs, initiatives and campaigns.  They serve many roles and functions including including planning, organizing, networking, promoting, recruiting, implementing, reporting, and evaluating law enforcement’s role in traffic safety projects, activities and achievements.

The LELs coordinate with the Highway Safety Office to provide administrative and technical support for state and local law enforcement participation in grant-funded enforcement operations in alignment with National Law Enforcement Liaison Program standards and best practices.

CURRENT ENFORCEMENT CAMPAIGN(S)

National “Click It or Ticket” CIOT Mobilization:
May 13 – June 2, 2024

The 21-day Seat Belt Enforcement Mobilization will include a new Pennsylvania Border to Border kickoff on May 13, 2024.  This is a one-day, 4-hour statewide seat-belt awareness event where we ask our law enforcement partners to coordinate high visibility occupant protection enforcement activities along heavily travelled state, county and local boarder roadways to encourage everyone to buckle up.

The focus of the mobilization is to maximize both day and nighttime seat belt use by targeting roadways with high unbelted crashes, injuries, and deaths.

Participating Agencies should consider using Traffic Enforcement Zones, Saturation Patrols, Speed Enforcement Details, and coordinated multi-agency details to identify primary vehicle code violations and address secondary seat belt violations.
