Superbowl Crackdown period results in 24 arrests in Dutchess County

During the Superbowl Crackdown period of January 31, 2015 thru February 2, 2015, members of the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office, New York State Police, Town of Poughkeepsie Police Department, Town of Hyde Park Police Department, Town of East Fishkill Police Department, City of Poughkeepsie Police Department, City of Beacon Police Department, Village of Millerton Police Department and Village of Wappingers Falls Police Department conducted Impaired Driving details consisting of Saturation Patrols during the three day period. The arrests included 14 impaired driving arrests as well as 10 other arrests.

These details were funded by the Governors Traffic Safety Board and the NYS STOP-DWI Foundation which once again awarded the Dutchess County STOP-DWI Program a “Crackdown Enforcement Grant” for the 2014-2015 Crackdown periods.

The objective of this continued 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 stated, “Participation in the Statewide Super Bowl Crackdown allows Law Enforcement to identify and apprehend those who choose to drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs. It also demonstrates and reaffirms law enforcement’s commitment to the shared mission of preventing injuries and deaths on our roadways, all of which are 100% preventable. The Super bowl has become one of America’s most highly anticipated sports events where friends and family gather to celebrate. This effort is aimed at keeping the roadways safe for all users. It is also a reminder for fans and partygoers to be responsible. Walk, ride and carpool. Call a cab or friend. Simply don’t drive, it not worth the risk.”
