This articlee says, "Officers also issued 7,041 safety belt and 1,423 child passenger safety violations, 38,662 speeding violations and 3,994 drug charges. In addition, they apprehended 2,247 fugitives from justice and recovered 228 stolen vehicles".
Seems to me they may have stumbled upon something that works. Maybe law enforcement should do this on a monthly basis like maybe one weekend every month. Just getting that many fugitives off the streets and making that many drug arrest alone makes it worth the time and money. While I am sure some would claim their Rights are being violated by this action, I see it more along the lines of law enforcement doing a better job of protecting the general public.
