Labor Day Crackdown Period Details Lead To 72 Arrests in Dutchess County

During the Fourth of Labor Day Crackdown period of August (19), 2016 thru September 5, 2016 members of the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office, New York State Police, 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 conducted Impaired Driving details consisting of Saturation Patrols and several sobriety checkpoints throughout the county.  The arrests included 54 impaired driving arrests as well as 18 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 Sheriff's Office: DWI Check PointJoint agency sobriety checkpoints were conducted on Saturday August 27 into Sunday August 28, 2016, from 10pm thru 2am on Rte 44 in the Town of Northeast by the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office and the Village of Millerton Police Department, Saturday September 3, 2016 from 4-11pm on Salt Point Turnpike in the Town of Poughkeepsie by the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office, the Town of Poughkeepsie Police Department and the New York State Police and on Sunday September 4, 2016 from 12-5am on Rte 82 in the Town of East Fishkill by the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office and the Town of East Fishkill Police Department.  

According to Dutchess County STOP-DWI Coordinator William C. Johnson  “The Labor Day Crackdown enforcement efforts once again bring into focus the dedication and combined efforts of Law Enforcement personnel county-wide. Dutchess County’s participation in the Crackdown Grant Project has enhanced the collective ability of State, County and municipal law enforcement officers to stand and work side by side in a coordinated effort to identify and apprehend those who choose to drive impaired. The STOP-DWI Program acknowledges the dedication of all of our Traffic Safety partners in the shared mission of saving lives on our roadways and is grateful for the opportunity to participate in the grant project for the third consecutive year.”
