Police Cracking Down On BWI & DWI During Labor Day Weekend


Suffolk County Police Commissioner Edward Webber has announced a comprehensive boating and driving while intoxicated crackdown plan to help keep residents safe during the upcoming Labor Day weekend.

Suffolk County Police will be patrolling for DWI and BWI offenders on Suffolk roads and waterways. The enforcement effort will include officers from the Marine Bureau, Community Support Units, the Motorcycle Section, the SAFE-T (Selective Alcohol Fatality Enforcement) Section as well as standard patrols.

“We are asking residents to make responsible decisions to ensure a safe holiday for themselves and others this weekend,” said County Executive Steve Bellone. “Suffolk statistics indicate that increased enforcement efforts have assisted in reducing the amount of accidents and fatalities.  I wish a safe Labor Day weekend to all.”

“Lives are lost each year because of the irresponsible decisions of others to operate a boat or drive a vehicle under the influence,” Suffolk County Police Commissioner Edward Webber said. “Officers will be aggressively targeting offenders to ensure a safe holiday for residents of Suffolk County.”
