Holiday Season DWI Details Lead To 72 Arrests in Dutchess County

During the Holiday Crackdown period of December 15, 2017 thru January 1, 2018 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 Red Hook Police Department & Village of Millerton Police Department conducted Impaired Driving details consisting of Saturation Patrols throughout the county in addition to their regular patrols. The arrests included 67 impaired driving arrests as well as five other arrests.

These details were funded by the Governors Traffic Safety Committee and the NYS STOP-DWI Foundation which for the 5th year in a row once again awarded the Dutchess County STOP-DWI Program a “Crackdown Enforcement Grant” for the 2017-2018 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 Johnson stated “Throughout the Holiday Enforcement Crackdown campaign Law Enforcement worked tirelessly, often in severe weather conditions including this extended cold snap, to assure safety for motorists and families on our roadways. Once again their combined efforts resulted in an eye opening number of arrests.  The commitment and coordinated efforts of our law enforcement partners reaffirms that if you choose to drive impaired by alcohol or drugs in Dutchess County there is a high probability you will be identified, apprehended, and prosecuted. It’s simply not worth the risk.”
