ALBION – The Albion Police Department, using STOP DWI funding, engaged in a focused STOP DWI Check Point Detail in various locations within the village of Albion on Aug. 10.

The checkpoints were done with the assistance and coordination of many law enforcement agencies including the Orleans County Sheriff’s Office, State Police, Holley Police Department, Orleans County Probation Department and New York State Parole.

The combined efforts of those involved resulted in two DWI arrests, one DWI drug arrest, three unlawful possession of marijuana arrests, two aggravated unlicensed operation arrests, two warrant suspects arrested from Genesee and Niagara counties, one person listed as missing located and found to be OK, one Probation violation, along with the issuance of several vehicle and traffic violations.

The arrests show the dedication and commitment set forth by the officers of the Albion Police Department and the other law enforcement personnel, Albion Police Chief Roland Nenni III said.

“Sadly it also shows the rate of persons driving under the influence and disregarding the laws that are in place for everyone’s safety,” Nenni said. “The Albion Police Department is committed to make the streets safe for all that use them and to focus on taking those persons off the street that violate the law.”

With the assistance of funding provided by The Stop DWI Program and the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee, the Albion Police Department will be engaging in several focused patrol campaigns on a continual basis.

“We will use every tactic and technique available to us to enforce the law and make for a safer community,” Nenni said.
