School buses are back on the road, and police in La Porte will be keeping a close eye on stop arm violators.

The La Porte City Police Department will be conducting School Bus Safety patrols from August 24 through September 11, with officers working approximately 80 extra hours of patrols.

Extra patrols will be funded by the Stop Arm Violation Enforcement (SAVE) grant from the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute.

Officers will target drivers who pass school buses while the stop arm is extended.

La Porte police ask the public to be vigilant of their driving habits to ensure not only their safety, but also the children embarking and disembarking a school bus.
