Mangano And Singas Announce STOP-DWI Initiative For Memorial Day Weekend

Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano, District Attorney Madeline Singas and Acting Nassau County Police Commissioner Thomas Krumpter announced today that additional police officers have been assigned to extensive STOP-DWI enforcement initiative for the Memorial Day weekend.

“Drunk drivers jeopardize the lives and safety of innocent people every time they get behind the wheel,” said County Executive Mangano. “Our Nassau County Police Officers will be targeting drunk drivers – not just this Memorial Day weekend but all year round - looking to prevent senseless alcohol-related accidents and locking up those who break the law. There will be additional police patrols throughout Nassau County looking for drunk and impaired drivers. Think before you drink. Don’t drink and drive.”

“The message this Memorial Day weekend and throughout the 100 deadliest days of summer is clear: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over,” DA Singas said. “Our partners in the police department are patrolling our roads and searching for drunk and drugged drivers who jeopardize the lives of everyone around them. Nassau County PD will arrest you, you will spend the night in jail and be prosecuted by my office. Drunk and drugged driving devastates families that lose loved ones in car crashes. No one wants to cause that kind of pain so plan ahead and have a designated driver this weekend.”

Funding for the Memorial Day Patrol is provided by a grant from the New York State Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee through the New York STOP DWI Foundation and the Nassau County STOP DWI Office. The funds will enable the Nassau County Police Department (NCPD) and police departments throughout the county to implement an effective DWI saturation enforcement strategy that has proven very successful in years past. The NCPD’s Highway Patrol Bureau will coordinate and plan this initiative that will target certain areas throughout the county. There were 73 DWI arrests in Nassau County over last year’s Memorial Day Weekend, and in 2016 there were 2,509 DWI arrests countywide and 28 DWI fatalities.

Acting Police Commissioner Thomas Krumpter stated, “The Nassau County Police Department has a zero tolerance policy for those who drive under the influence putting those on the road at risk. This campaign is intended to identify and apprehend alcohol impaired drivers. Our aim will be to make the roadways safe for all drivers and our targets will be those who disregard the law.
