FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: June 26, 2018

Additional Deputies on Roadways June 28 to July 15, 2018

June 28 through July 15, 2018, the Travis County Sheriff’s Office will participate in the Impaired Driving Mobilization (IDM) grant which targets drivers who are driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. This grant is offered by the Texas Department of Transportation (TXDOT) and will allow the Sheriff’s Office to put additional deputies on local roadways to increase DWI enforcement and seek out impaired drivers.

Alcohol and drug related accidents and deaths are preventable. TCSO asks the public to report impaired drivers to 911. Together, we can reduce impaired drivers on the roadways and save lives.

Don’t be a statistic! Remember, "buzzed driving" is drunk driving. If you drink, don’t drive.

For more information contact Sgt. Andres Alaniz, at
