Holiday Alcohol Task Force Concludes

For Immediate Release: Wednesday, January 13, 2021

Holiday Alcohol Task Force officers have devoted their full-time and attention to detecting alcohol-related offenses this holiday season.

During this past week's enforcement (January 6, 7, 8, 9)

  • 20 people were arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs (DUI) by Task Force officers*
  • 4 of the 20 people arrested for DUI were arrested for DUI after being involved in a collision.


During the past  eight weeks of enforcement:

  • 262 people were arrested for DUI by Task Force officers.
  • 48 of the 262 people arrested for DUI were arrested for DUI after being involved in a collision.

*The above arrests include only those arrests made by task force officers and do not include the additional arrests made by patrol officers in the performance of their duties.  Therefore, the overall number of DUI arrests made by officers during this time period is higher.

**For future reference, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there was a restriction in place that bars and restaurants were closed for dine-in (carry-out only) during this week of enforcement.
