FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: August 13, 2019

Additional Travis County Sheriff’s Office Deputies on Roadways

August 17, 2019 thru September 3, 2019

August 17th – September 3rd, the Travis County Sheriff’s Office will participate in the Impaired Driving Mobilization (IDM) grant which targets drivers who are operating a vehicle 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 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 impaired drivers on the roadways and save lives.
