Seneca County Police Agencies to Participate in Statewide STOP-DWI ST. PATRICK’S DAY “High Visibility Engagement Campaign”

STOP-DWI Impaired Driving High Visibility Engagement Campaign
March 15, 2024 to March 17, 2024

Seneca County Sheriff Timothy J. Thompson, Jr. announced today that Seneca County police agencies and STOP-DWI Coordinators will participate in special efforts to bring awareness to the dangers of impaired driving.

The statewide STOP-DWI Crackdown efforts start on March 15, 2024, and will end on March 17, 2024. St. Patrick’s Day Weekend is a notoriously deadly period for impaired driving due to the number of celebrations and drivers on the road. The Seneca County Sheriff’s Office, Interlaken Police Department, New York State Police, Seneca Falls Police Department, and Waterloo Police Department will all be participating in special engagement efforts to reduce the number of alcohol related injuries and deaths.

Sheriff Thompson stated, “We want people to have fun over the St. Patrick’s Day weekend, but it is more important for everyone to use good judgment and be safe. If you are going to drink, don’t drive.”

The STOP-DWI St. Patrick’s Day High Visibility Engagement Campaign is one of many statewide initiatives promoted by STOP-DWI NY and the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee. The Statewide STOP-DWI High Visibility Engagement Campaign also targets Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day/End of Summer, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Holiday Season and Super Bowl.

Highly visible, highly publicized efforts like the STOP-DWI High Visibility Engagement Campaign aim to further reduce the incidence of drunk and impaired driving.
