Congratulations to Roseville Police Officers Mitch Christensen, Kyle Eckert, and Christine Marston for receiving recognition from the Ramsey County Traffic Safety Initiative (RCTSI) for their traffic safety work.
This year, the officers issued more than 200 citations and more than 250 warnings during RCTSI events. Congratulations also to Officer Boua Chang who coordinates the city’s participation in the traffic safety initiative.
RCTSI is a grant-funded effort sponsored by the Minnesota Office of Traffic Safety. The initiative targets impaired or distracted drivers, seatbelt violations and speeding violations. Its mission is to create safer roadways by raising public awareness and enforcing traffic regulations.
Through RCTSI, 20 or more Ramsey County law enforcement squads work together on specific roadways throughout the year to create high-visibility events. MnDOT signs notify motorists that increased enforcement is under way, and officers wear highly visible traffic vests.
Officer Christensen has been a Roseville police officer for past three years; Officer Eckert for five and Officer Marston has been with Roseville for two years. Officer Chang has been a Roseville police officer for six years. Before that he worked as a community services officer.
