MCTXSheriff and Montgomery County Law Enforcement Holiday DWI Initiative
Between December 14, 2018 and January 2, 2019, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office and other agencies throughout the county participated in a statewide initiative aimed at preventing intoxicated driving offenses. Holiday DWI enforcement campaigns have led to significant reductions in the numbers of alcohol-and-drug related incidents. Still, too many lives are being lost because of crashes caused by impaired drivers. Highly visible, publicized efforts like the Holiday DWI enforcement campaigns aim to further reduce the incidence of drunk and impaired driving. More than 190 intoxication-related arrests were made during this event, which could potentially have saved countless lives. This effort by Montgomery County Law Enforcement agencies helped give the community a safer holiday season.
Sheriff Henderson states, “I am proud of the partnership of Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office with state and local law enforcement agencies to ensure our community was safe this holiday season through participation in the holiday DWI initiative. The dedication of these individuals was apparent through their crackdown on intoxication-related offences. Great job by all the agencies who participated!”
