Alexandria Police Roaming DWI Enforcement Results

Alexandria police conducted a roaming DWI enforcement effort to deter and apprehend intoxicated drivers from 8:00 P.M. on Friday, June 29, to 6:00 A.M. on Saturday, June 30.  Vehicles observed committing traffic infractions were stopped and drivers were checked to assure that their abilities to drive had not been impaired by alcohol or drugs.

The enforcement effort was suspended between 12:30 A.M. and 2:30 A.M. Saturday morning due to the severe storm that struck Alexandria.  Officers were pulled from the DWI enforcement effort to assist patrol officers with the large number of calls for service that came into the communications center due to the storm.  Officers returned to the DWI enforcement effort after the storm had passed and calls for service slowed down. 

During the roaming enforcement effort, 31 vehicles were stopped and two arrests were made for Driving While Intoxicated (DWI).  One arrest was made for possession of marijuana.  In addition, 26 summonses were issued for miscellaneous traffic offenses.

Six Alexandria police officers, one Sheriff’s Deputy and one Emergency Communications Technician participated in the mobile enforcement effort.

For further details, please call the Public Information Office at 703.746-6600.
