During December 2011, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office will be involved in the national “You Drink & Drive. You Lose” Selective DUI Enforcement crackdown.
This is a coordinated effort of law enforcement agencies across the nation to decrease the number of impaired drivers in our communities. This selective enforcement is funded through a $15,000.00 Nebraska Office of Highway Safety grant.
Sheriff Tim Dunning said the goal with this selective enforcement is to use additional deputies and saturation patrols to seek out suspected alcohol impaired drivers and arrest them; thus, creating safer streets for the citizens of Douglas County.
