Fourth of July Crackdown period results in 34 arrests in Dutchess County

 

Poughkeepsie…During the Fourth of July Crackdown period of July 3, 2015 thru July 5, 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 & Village of Wappingers Falls Police Department conducted Impaired Driving details consisting of coordinated Saturation Patrols during the three day period.  The arrests included 24 impaired driving arrests as well as 10 other arrests.

These details were funded by the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee 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.

According to Dutchess County STOP-DWI Coordinator William Johnson, “Participation in the Crackdown Grant project supports the coordinated efforts of State, County, and Municipal law enforcement during Holiday periods, which have proven to be the most dangerous and deadly on our roadways.  The single focus and intent is to reduce the prevalence of impaired driving by sending a clear message that if you choose to drive impaired in Dutchess County there is a unilateral commitment to identify, apprehend, and prosecute those who do.  Simply separate the two behaviors and have a plan to get home safety.”
