The Washington Police Department and County Sheriff’s Office say they’re participating in “Operation H.E.A.T.” through next Wednesday. Washington Police Sgt. Shawn Ellingson says the Governor’s Traffic Safety Bureau has placed a “high priority on traffic enforcement over the weekend” in all of eastern Iowa.  Area law enforcement will be conducting nighttime seatbelt enforcement, with the use of plain clothed officers to spot violators.  The Louisa County Sheriff’s office says it is also targeting traffic violations this weekend, specifically seatbelt, impaired driving and speed violations.
