Alexandria police conducted a roaming DWI enforcement effort to deter and apprehend intoxicated drivers from 8:30 P.M. on Saturday, February 26, to 6:30 A.M. on Sunday, February 27.  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, 105 vehicles were stopped and five arrests were made for Driving While Intoxicated (DWI).  In addition, 75 summonses were issued for miscellaneous traffic offenses and 30 traffic violation warnings were given.

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