(Neb.)-Chadron Police Department To Participate In
From Friday, August 18th, 2017 through Monday, September 4th, 2017, the Chadron Police Department will be participating in the “You Drink & Drive, You Lose” crackdown sponsored the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety (NOHS).
The Chadron Police Department recently received an $1853.22 grant from the NOHS, which will provide twelve patrol officers and four communication dispatchers 64 hours of extra coverage in the 18 day enforcement period.
The purpose and goal of the crackdown is to reduce the amount of injury and fatalities incurred by individuals who choose to consume alcohol and drive their vehicles while they are above the legal blood alcohol level.
The Chadron Police Department will step up enforcement and remaining highly visible during the high risk hours. The Chadron Police Department believes the chance of being caught is too high to risk given the consequences. Officer DeBock says, “I would ask the public to be sensible and responsible and make the choice to not drink and drive. If you plan on drinking, be sure to have a sober driver available, and wear your seatbelt.”
