Super Bowl Crackdown Detail results in 25 Arrests in Dutchess County

During the Super Bowl weekend members of the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office, Town of Poughkeepsie Police Department, City of Poughkeepsie Police Department, Town of Hyde Park Police Department, Town of East Fishkill Police Department & Village of Red Hook Police Department conducted multi-agency “Saturation Patrol” details throughout Dutchess County as part of a high visibility “Crackdown” enforcement campaign. The goal of the Super Bowl Crackdown as all other crackdown periods was to discourage people from driving impaired, promote awareness, and keep the roadways safe. These details were conducted during the Super Bowl period of January 31, 2014 thru February 3, 2014.

These patrol details were funded by the Governors Traffic Safety Committee 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. 

Dutchess County STOP-DWI Coordinator William Johnson was quoted “Participation in the Statewide Crackdown grant has enhanced the collective focus of Law Enforcement countywide to identify and apprehend those who choose to drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The Super bowl has become one of America’s most highly anticipated sports events where family and friends gather to celebrate. But without sticking to an effective game plan the results at the end of the game may not always be desirable. This coordinated enforcement effort is aimed at reducing the number of alcohol and drug related crashes, injuries, and deaths. It is also a reminder for all fans and partygoers to be responsible, to have a plan. Walk, ride, and carpool. Call a cab or friend. Simply don’t drive and get a ride”. 
 
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 25 subjects, 22 of those arrests being impaired driving arrests.
