Police agencies in Oneida County will be taking part in a special enforcement effort to crackdown on impaired drivers through Labor Day.

The initiative begins today and runs until September 1st.

Oneida County STOP DWI will be partnering with the Whitesboro, Whitestown, Rome, Utica and New York Mills police departments, along with State Police and the Sheriff's Office.

“As we get ready to celebrate the last days of summer, please remember to celebrate responsibly. Oneida County remains vigilant in ridding the intoxicated driver and keeping our roadways safe”, said, Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente.

The STOP DWI program received a $25,000 grant from the Governor's Traffic Safety Committee to operate this and other selective crackdowns.
