Wayne County Sheriff Barry Virts recently announced that law enforcement agencies will enforce a Stop DWI Crackdown campaign May 26-30.
The campaign is linked with other law enforcement initiatives already done at key times of the year under a county and statewide umbrella. This campaign targets the time period around Memorial Day.
All Wayne County law enforcement agencies will participate and work together during the campaign period. This includes police departments, state police and WCSO coordinating awareness, education and enforcement activities.
Research findings demonstrate that highly visible, publicized efforts like the Stop DWI Memorial Day and Weekend campaign can further reduce the occurrence of DWI. Future crackdown periods will include the time period around July 4.
The Stop DWI Foundation has created a new mobile app, Have A Plan, that is available as a free download for smartphones to help find safe rides home.
