Alexandria Police Roaming DWI Enforcement Results

Alexandria police conducted a roaming DWI enforcement effort to deter and apprehend intoxicated drivers from 8:30 P.M. on Saturday, December 4, to 6:30 A.M. on Sunday, December 5.  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.

During the roaming enforcement effort, eighty-one vehicles were stopped and five arrests were made for Driving While Intoxicated (DWI).  Thirty-seven summonses were issued for miscellaneous traffic offenses and forty-four traffic violation warnings were given.

Ten Alexandria officers and one Alexandria Sheriff’s deputy participated in the mobile enforcement effort.
