The goal of the STOP-DWI program is to reduce the rate of injuries and fatalities due to impaired driving through the creation and funding of programs relating to enforcement, prosecution, probation, rehabilitation, public information, and education.
The success of STOP-DWI is attributed to maintaining a comprehensive, self-sustaining program. The STOP-DWI programs are in a position to continuously renew and adjust strategies to maintain a high level of viability.
Through a variety of innovative and creative means, Dutchess County STOP-DWI dedicates resources throughout the year to the mission of reducing alcohol- and drug-impaired driving casualties. Those preventive means include the areas of:
REHABILITATION / TREATMENT
