The Fillmore County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) began participating in the nationwide You Drink & You Drive You Lose crackdown on August 16. The campaign continues until September 2.

During this period, increased patrols will be made possible due to a Nebraska Office of Highway Safety (NOHS) grant. This grant will allow FCSO deputies to work extra time in order to increase the enforcement of traffic laws and specifically increase patrols for DUI enforcement.

The extra patrol time for FCSO deputies will be paid for by NOHS grant funds. With the goal of increasing DUI enforcement, the FCSO hopes to decrease the number of injury accidents which occur in the county. A no-tolerance stance on alcohol-related violations will be taken by FCSO deputies during this special enforcement period.
