BATON ROUGE – The Baton Rouge Police Department plan to have officers along the interstate to assist drivers on Sunday due to the expected increased volume of holiday traffic.

According to BRPD, last year the department placed eight officers on the interstate for rapid response in clearing the roadway of crashes, stalled vehicles and debris. During the shift, officers handled more than 120 incidents that were vital to continued traffic flow. The effort decreased response time and prevented on duty officers from handling calls on the interstate.

On Sunday, BRPD will have eight officers along the interstate from North Baton Rouge to South Baton Rouge, including four motorcycle officers, between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m.
