Mississippi state troopers were out in force through the long Memorial Day weekend.

Troop H, the Meridian district, issued 1375 citations. Corporal Andy West said the district made 18 DUI arrests and wrote 150 tickets for seat belt violations and 39 for failure to use child restraints.

"The biggest statistic was no fatalities in the Meridian district and only one statewide," said West.
