The Galveston Sheriff’s Office, in partnership with Houston Galveston Area Council and TXDOT, is participating once again with a reduction in drunk driving initiative aimed at reducing crashes involving serious injury or death.

 

Each year, thousands of dollars are awarded to state and local agencies that are dedicated to reducing injuries and deaths on Texas highways by strict enforcement of traffic violations and impaired driving investigations. This year is no different, and County officials report an increased number of DWI related arrests in Galveston County, including the Bolivar Peninsula.

 

Last year, this program produced 86 DWI arrests during the 2017 enforcement periods. This year, due to increased participation, Galveston County Sheriff’s officials report that number to have more than doubled. Stats in the reduction of violent crashes attributed to alcohol impairment are still being calculated but have shown a decrease in occurrences.

 

The enforcement period for the 2018 Thanksgiving Holidays will run from November 15 through November 27 and will focus primarily in “hot spots” or zones where an increase in crashes related to excessive drinking were shown last year through Data Driven enforcement modules.

 

The Galveston Sheriff’s Office and Sheriff Henry Trochesset thank you for remembering to Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.

Always interesting to see which local officials will wind up in jail during the crackdown.
