Suffolk County, NY - September 4, 2015 - Suffolk County Police Commissioner Edward Webber has announced a comprehensive boating and driving while intoxicated crackdown plan to help keep residents safe during Labor Day weekend.
Suffolk County Police will be patrolling for DWI and BWI offenders on Suffolk roads and waterways. The enforcement effort will include officers from Marine Bureau, Community Support Units, Motorcycle Section, SAFE-T (Selective Alcohol Fatality Enforcement) Section as well as patrols.
“In an effort to ensure Suffolk County residents have a safe and enjoyable holiday weekend, we are asking everyone to make responsible decisions,” said County Executive Steve Bellone. “Police are taking a zero-tolerance approach with those who drink and get behind the wheel of a car or boat.”
“Our officers will saturate the roads and waterways of Suffolk County to target drunk drivers and boaters,” said Suffolk County Police Commissioner Edward Webber. “All too often, officers respond to crashes during which people are seriously injured or killed due to a driver’s irresponsible actions.”
