Dale announced Thursday that this New Year’s weekend, the Nassau County Police Department (NCPD) will participate in a “STOP-DWI” program that will allocate additional police officers to conduct an extensive DWI enforcement initiative.

There were 55 DWI arrests in Nassau County over last year’s New Year’s holiday.

- If you plan to drink, choose a designated driver before going out.
- Take mass transit, a cab, or ask a sober friend to drive you home.
- Spend the night where the activity is being held.
- Always buckle up – it’s your best defense against a drunk driver.
