24 Arrested During Super Bowl Crackdown Period

During the Super Bowl Crackdown period of February 5, 2016 thru February 8, 2016 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, Village of Wappingers Falls Police Department, Village of Red Hook Police Department & Village of Millerton Police Department conducted Impaired Driving details consisting of Saturation Patrols throughout the county.  The arrests included 21 impaired driving arrests as well as 3 other arrests.
 

These details were funded by the Governors Traffic Safety Committee and the NYS STOP-DWI Foundation which for the 3rd year in  a row once again awarded the Dutchess County STOP-DWI Program a “Crackdown Enforcement Grant” for the 2015-2016 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 C. Johnson stated  “The coordinated efforts of Law Enforcement throughout the Super Bowl weekend have been effective in reducing the impact of impaired driving by  identifying drivers that did not make a winning decision. Those who were apprehended will experience game changing consequences because an impaired driving conviction produces no winners.  The message is clear, have a plan to get home safely before the party, and if you’re impaired don’t get behind the wheel.  It’s simply not worth the risk.”
