MCTXSheriff Increases DWI Enforcement Through TxDOT Grant
From August 16, 2019, to Labor Day weekend ending on September 02, 2019, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, along with other area law enforcement agencies, will be deploying additional resources to actively look for intoxicated drivers. The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office obtained a Texas Department of Transportation grant, which will assist in deploying additional law enforcement resources to target those who drive intoxicated. The District Attorney’s Office is assisting in these efforts, as there are several No Refusal Operations planned during this period. The District Attorney’s Office will be providing nurses, prosecutors, and judges on stand by for the enforcement operation.
The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office wants our citizens and guests to have a safe and enjoyable Labor Day, so please plan ahead and think before drinking and driving. Get a designated driver, use a car share service, and be responsible.
