Local law enforcement agencies will participate in the STOP-DWI end-of-summer high visibility engagement campaign.

The campaign began today (Aug. 18) and will run through Labor Day (Monday, Sept. 4).

The Cortland County Sheriff’s Office, the City of Cortland Police Department, the Village of Homer Police Department and New York State Police will be involved in the campaign, which aims to further reduce the incidence of drunk and impaired driving.

“Labor Day and the end-of-summer is one of the busiest travel times of the year,” stated in a release. “(Local) 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 campaign is one of many statewide initiatives promoted by STOP-DWI New York and Governor Kathy Hochul’s traffic safety committee. The campaign will also target Halloween, Thanksgiving and the Holiday Season this year.
