ALBION – Sheriff Chris Bourke, who also serves as Orleans County STOP-DWI Coordinator, announced that local law enforcement agencies will actively participate in the STOP-DWI Labor Day High Visibility Engagement Campaign, which started August 20 and continues through September 6.

As summer winds down Labor Day is one of the busiest travel holidays of the year. With the increase in traffic on our roadways comes an increase 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.

The STOP-DWI High Visibility Engagement Campaigns are promoted by New York STOP-DWI Association with additional funding from the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee and implemented by the STOP-DWI Foundation.
