Niagara County Sheriff’s Memorial Day weekend High Visibility Campaign


Sheriff Michael J. Filicetti announces that Niagara County law enforcement agencies will participate in a special effort to bring awareness to the
dangers of impaired driving. In a combined effort to stop impaired driving, prevent injuries and save lives, law enforcement officers across

New York State will take to the roads. The statewide STOP- DWI High Visibility Engagement Campaign efforts start on Friday, May 24th and will end on Monday, May 27th. The Niagara County Sheriff’s Office, as well as law enforcement agencies across Niagara County, will be out in force in
this coordinated effort to reduce the number of impaired driving-related injuries and death. The STOP-DWI Memorial Day Weekend High Visibility Engagement Campaign is one of many statewide enforcement initiatives promoted by STOP-DWI New York and the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee. The Statewide STOP-DWI High Visibility Engagement Campaign also targets weekends throughout the summer, July 4th, Labor Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Holiday Season, Super Bowl Weekend, and St. Patrick’s Day.

Additionally, there will concentrated efforts on April 20th and July 10th. During these times, the focus of our community engagement will be drug impaired driving. While STOP-DWI efforts across New York have led to significant reductions in the numbers of alcohol and drug related fatalities, still too many lives are being lost because of crashes caused by drunk or impaired drivers. Highly visible, highly publicized efforts like the STOP-DWI High Visibility Engagement Campaign aim to further reduce the incidence of drunk and impaired driving. Niagara County news.
