Press Release, Sheriff Chris Bourke

ALBION – Orleans County STOP-DWI Coordinator, Sheriff Chris Bourke announced that local law enforcement agencies will actively participate in the STOP-DWI Halloween High Visibility Engagement Campaign which runs from Oct. 29 to Nov. 1.

An increase in traffic on our roadways is expected during Halloween due to trick or treating, Halloween parties and festivities.

With increased traffic comes an increased risk in crashes, including impaired-driving crashes. Law enforcement agencies and local STOP-DWI Programs will collaborate across the state and will be out in force in this coordinated effort to reduce the number of impaired driving-related injuries and deaths.
