Halloween DWI Details Lead To 37 Arrests in Dutchess County

During Halloween and the following weekend members of the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office, City of Poughkeepsie, City of Beacon PD, Town of East Fishkill Police, Town of Hyde Park Police, Town of Poughkeepsie Police Department, Town of Fishkill, Village of Red Hook Police, Village of Millerton Police & Village of Fishkill conducted multi-agency “Saturation Patrol” details throughout Dutchess County as well as a joint-agency Sobriety Checkpoint all part of a high visibility “Crackdown” enforcement campaign. The goal of the Halloween Crackdown was to discourage people from driving impaired, promote awareness, and keep the roadways safe. These details were conducted during the Halloween Crackdown period of October 30 thru November 3, 2013, which also included a joint-agency sobriety checkpoint that was conducted by the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office and the City of Poughkeepsie Police Department.

These patrol details were funded by the Governors Traffic Safety Board and the NYS STOP-DWI Foundation which awarded the Dutchess County STOP-DWI Program a “Crackdown Enforcement Grant” for the 2013-2014 Crackdown periods. The objective of the enforcement grant is to revitalize and enhance the visibility of the STOP-DWI Program through coordinated multi-agency impaired driving enforcement details targeting identified statewide crackdown periods. They also include the assignment of certified Drug Recognition Experts (DRE) to aid in the identification and apprehension of drivers impaired by drugs other than alcohol. These details were conducted during the Halloween Crackdown period of October 30 thru November 3, 2013, which also included a joint-agency roving sobriety checkpoint that was conducted by the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office and the City of Poughkeepsie Police Department on November 2nd and included the assignment of a DRE from the sheriff’s office. The checkpoints had a total of 670 vehicles pass thru with 6 impaired driving arrests being made which averaged 1 impaired driving arrest for each 111 vehicles that came thru the checkpoints.

While STOP-DWI efforts across New York have led to significant reductions in the numbers of alcohol related fatalities, still too many lives are being lost because of crashes caused by drunk or impaired drivers. Highly visible, publicized efforts like the Crackdown campaign aim to reduce the numbers even further. Motorists encountering what they suspect is an impaired driver, should call 911 with a description of the vehicle, location and direction of travel.

The combined efforts of the involved police agencies during this period resulted in the reported arrests of 37 subjects, 28 of those arrests being impaired driving arrests.
