FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: June 26, 2019

Additional Travis County Sheriff’s Office Deputies on Roadways June 27 - July 14

June 27, 2019 through July 14, 2019, the Travis County Sheriff’s Office will participate in the Impaired Driving Mobilization (IDM) grant which targets drivers who are under the influence of alcohol. 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 seek out impaired drivers.

Alcohol related accidents and deaths are preventable. We are asking for 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. Chris Hughes.
