Rockland Sheriff Starts Holiday DWI Crackdown

ROCKLAND COUNTY, N.Y. -- As residents get in the holiday spirit with parties and special events, the Rockland County Sheriff’s Office has announced they will be out in force as part of the national "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" campaign, designed to make the roadways safer during the holiday season.

During the campaign, which runs through the first of the New Year, the sheriff’s office will have extra patrols working for the sole purpose of enforcing driving while intoxicated laws, said Sheriff Louis Falco.

“Our goal is to keep everyone safe," Falco said. "I encourage people to use a designated driver and to drive safely during this holiday season.”

The sheriff’s office will be joining other local law enforcement agencies along with the State Police in the effort to prevent fatalities and serious injuries from drivers under the influence of alcohol or drugs, he added.

Funding for the initiative comes from the Rockland County STOP-DWI program headed by Coordinator Leslie Berger.
