Labor Day Crackdown Details result in 60 Arrests in Dutchess County

During the Labor Day Crackdown Period members of the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office, Town of Poughkeepsie Police Department, Town of East Fishkill Police Department, Town of Hyde Park Police Department, City of Poughkeepsie Police Department, City of Beacon Police Department, Village of Red Hook Police Department, Village of Millerton Police Department and the New York State Police conducted multi-agency “Saturation Patrol” details throughout Dutchess County as part of a high visibility “Crackdown” enforcement campaign.  Additionally a joint agency sobriety checkpoint was conducted by some of the involved agencies as well. The goal of the Labor Day Impaired Driving 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 part of the Labor Day crackdown period of August 21, 2015 thru September 7, 2015 ending the grant period which started in October 2014.   This crackdown period resulted in a total of 60 arrests which included 53 impaired driving 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.

Dutchess County STOP-DWI Coordinator William Johnson had the following message “The coordinated crackdown enforcement efforts are simply targeted to help reduce the numbers of impaired drivers on the roads and to save lives. Impaired driving continues to be a serious safety threat and by raising public awareness we hope to reverse that trend. The STOP-DWI Program acknowledges the dedication of law enforcement and all of the traffic safety partners dedicated to this mission”

The crackdowns which spanned from October 2014 thru September 2015, included eight separate periods which are listed below and resulted in a reported total of 368 arrests, including 295 Impaired Driving arrests by the participating agencies in Dutchess County.
