Wayne County Sheriff Barry Virts reports the “STOP-DWI High Visibility Engagement Campaign for July 4th Day and Weekend Campaign” linked with other law enforcement initiatives already done at key times of the year and promoting it under a county and statewide umbrella. 

This campaign targets the time period around July 4th Day and Weekend. 

The “STOP-DWI High Visibility Engagement Campaign for July 4th Day and Weekend Campaign” will be July 2 through 5 and is a locally driven program with all Wayne County law enforcement agencies participating and working together; police departments, state police and the Sheriff’s Office coordinating awareness, education and enforcement activities. 

Research findings demonstrate that highly visible, publicized efforts like the “STOP-DWI July 4th Day and Weekend High Visibility Engagement Campaign” can further reduce the occurrence of DWI.
