FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: March 11, 2019

Additional Travis County Sheriff’s Office Deputies on Roadways

The Travis County Sheriff’s Office is currently participating in the Impaired Driving Mobilization (IDM) grant which targets drivers who are operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol. The initiative started March 8th and will continue through the 25th. This grant is offered by the Texas Department of Transportation (TXDOT) and will allow the Sheriff’s Office to put additional deputies on roadways in an effort to reduce impaired driving and impaired driving collisions.

Alcohol related accidents and deaths are preventable. We are asking for the public to report impaired drivers to 911. Together, we can reduce the number of impaired drivers on roadways and save lives.
