The 2017 criminal arrests were for miscellaneous drug and alcohol violations and persons wanted on warrants. The increase in numbers is a combination of more troopers working the detail, troopers working the federally funded operation pull over currently ongoing, and it appears there were less calls for service which allowed troopers to focus more on traffic/criminal enforcement. Other factors such as driver behavior and more attendees may play a part as well.
