FCPD tomorrow is set to debut a nine-officer team that will focus on reducing crashes by motorists who are driving while intoxicated, according to the department. The cops will work from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m., using statistics and requests from locals and police commanders to determine where they should patrol.
The officers will get additional training on spotting drunk drivers and recognizing drug use. But they already have averaged 241 DWI arrests in the past seven years.
“It is our hope that the squad’s extensive experience and passion for DWI enforcement will continue to enhance the safety of our motoring public,” an FCPD news release says.
