Labor Day Crackdown Leads to 31 Impaired Driving Arrests in Dutchess County

During the Labor Day Crackdown period of August 18, 2017 thru September 4, 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 conducted Impaired Driving details consisting of Saturation Patrols throughout the county. Thirty two arrests were made which included 31 impaired driving arrests.  
 

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. 
 

“According to Dutchess County STOP-DWI Coordinator William C. Johnson “Local law enforcement ramped up efforts over the Labor Day Crackdown resulting once again in an eye opening number of impaired driving arrests. The “Drive Sober or get pulled over” campaign is a clear reminder that it is everyone’s responsibility to refrain from impaired driving or face the consequences. It continues to be a pervasive behavior that has claimed too many lives and impacted too many families. We acknowledge the efforts of our law enforcement partners to identify and apprehend those who don’t get the message.”
