Blanket patrol out in full force this weekend
Albany County Sheriff's Department officials announced a blanket patrol for Friday and Saturday as part of the STOP DWI program. The state police, sheriff's department, and 11 other police departments are working together on it.
The last time they did this, back in September, they arrested 16 people for drunk driving throughout the county.
But this weekend's patrol has personal meaning for one of the program's coordinators.
Leonard Crouch said, "It also brings a special thing to me because just under four years ago my own son was killed in an accident where he was intoxicated, and he drove at graduation time at Siena College. And so it's a very important thing to make sure that we don't forget the message."
Blanket patrols started back in 1989. This is the 45th one since then.
Agencies to join forces for DWI sweep
Police will be out in full force this weekend in Warren and Washington counties.
Officials announced that a county-wide DWI sweep will be taking place on Friday and Saturday nights.
This is the first time that both agencies have joined
forces to conduct a DWI sweep.
