Memorial Day Crackdown in Dutchess County Leads to 33 Impaired Driving Arrests

During the Memorial Day Crackdown period of May 26, 2017 thru May 30, 2017 members of the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office, New York State Police, City of Poughkeepsie Police Department, Town of Poughkeepsie Police Department, Town of Hyde Park Police Department, Town of East Fishkill Police Department, Village of Red Hook Police Department & Village of Millerton Police Department conducted Impaired Driving details consisting of Saturation Patrols throughout the county.  A total of 33 impaired driving arrests were reported during the crackdown.
 

These details were funded by the Governors Traffic Safety Committee and the NYS STOP-DWI Foundation which for the 4th year in  a row once again awarded the Dutchess County STOP-DWI Program a “Crackdown Enforcement Grant” for the 2016-2017 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 STOP-DWI Program acknowledges the ongoing commitment of  Law Enforcement to once again set the tone and send a strong message at the beginning of the summer months that the identification and apprehension of impaired drivers remains a priority. Law Enforcement works hard every day to ensure our roads remain safe. The Crackdown initiative with coordinated, highly visible enforcement will also be in full effect during the Fourth of July and Labor Day Holidays. Drivers can expect to see sobriety checkpoints and enhanced patrols using both marked and unmarked patrol vehicles, so think twice & have a plan.”
