Increased DUI enforcement will begin on Thanksgiving Day and run through Monday, according to a release.

Sgt. James McCarty said, “Just one DUI death is too many. By adding extra patrols, we can focus more attention on not only getting impaired drivers off the road, but also reducing the number of traffic crashes.”

The department said that it will also add patrols Dec. 17-31 for a Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign, paid for by a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration grant for 2022.
