The Illinois State Police did special enforcement patrols in the Tri-County Region Thursday. The detail, called Operation Safe Travel included troopers from three other districts in addition to Peoria District 8 and they issued 104 citations, most for speeding. Much of the operation took place on I-74 between the construction at Morton and the City of Peoria.
