Mangano To Intensify DWI/BWI Patrols For Independence Week

Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano and Acting Police Commissioner Thomas C. Krumpter today announced that Nassau County will participate in a “STOP-DWI” Program that allocates additional police officers to conduct extensive DWI/BWI enforcement initiatives over the July 4th week.

County Executive Mangano stated, “Nassau County Police Officers will be targeting drunk drivers and boaters on land and sea looking to prevent the kind of senseless alcohol-related accidents that, unfortunately, often occur during a holiday. There will be additional police patrols throughout Nassau County and chances are if you drive drunk at any point, you will be arrested. Think before you drink. Don’t drink and drive.”

Intensified police patrols for this July 4th weekend are funded by a special grant from the New York State STOP DWI Coordinator’s Association and the New York State Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee. This initiative provides the Nassau County Police Department (NCPD) and other local police departments throughout the county with additional funding to implement an effective DWI drunk and drugged driving saturation enforcement strategy that has proven successful in years past. The NCPD’s Highway Patrol Bureau, with the Nassau County STOP DWI Program, will coordinate this initiative that targets certain areas throughout Nassau County. In 2016, 78 DWI arrests were made in Nassau County over the July 4th holiday weekend.

In coordination with the “Stop DWI” initiative, the Nassau County Police Department in cooperation with the New York State Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services will conduct a multi-agency initiative that cracks down on law violators in our waterways, which includes but is not limited to those Boating While Intoxicated.

County Executive Mangano reminds residents:

  • 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.

In addition to the Nassau County Police Department, the following Village and City Police Department’s in Nassau County will be participating in the Fourth of July Holiday week’s intensified “STOP DWI” initiative: Garden City Police Department, Great Neck Estates Police Department, Hempstead Police Department, Kensington Police Department, Kings Point Police Department, Lake Success Police Department, Long Beach Police Department, Lynbrook Police Department, Old Westbury Police Department and Rockville Centre Police Department.
