Holiday Crackdown Post-Enforcement Report

CONTACT: Sergeant Heun 417-781-9494 j.heun@duquesnemo.org

Duquesne Police Department’s Holiday DWI Crackdown Enforcement Campaign Duquesne Police Department’s participation in the nation’s annual “Holiday DWI Crackdown” substance-impaired driving campaign was a major success; Duquesne Police Department reported the following arrest were made during the enforcement period, which ran from December 12, 2014 to January 1, 2015:  

3 Arrest for Driving while intoxicated
2 Arrest for Felony warrants 
5 Arrest for Misdemeanor warrants
1 Arrest for Possession of a controlled substance
1 Arrest for Possession of drug paraphernalia 
1 Arrest for Fugitive from another state  

“I am proud of our Officers for their hard work and dedication to making our region’s roadways safer,” said Chief Kitch.

“Substance-impaired driving is more than a reckless choice by a few individuals,” He said. “Each year, substance-impaired driving costs the lives of thousands on America’s highways. In 2014, 223 people died in Missouri crashes involving impaired drivers. “That worked out to about to approximately one impaired driving fatality every 1 ½ days.”

There were seven people killed and 69 seriously injured over the counting period for New Years 2013 (6:00 pm, Dec. 31 to midnight Jan. 5). Two of the fatalities and nine of the serious injuries involved a substance-impaired driver.

Duquesne Police Department joined forces with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and nearly 10,000 law enforcement agencies across the country in this year’s “Holiday DWI Crackdown” campaign.
