Putnam to Add Extra DWI Patrols All Summer

Putnam County Sheriff Kevin McConville, Carmel Police Department Chief Anthony Hoffmann, and Kent Police Department Chief Kevin Owens announced today that Putnam County police agencies and STOP-DWI Coordinators will participate in special efforts to bring awareness to the dangers of impaired driving this summer.

Beginning with the statewide July 4th STOP-DWI High Visibility Engagement Campaign will run from July 1st through July 5th and then continuing through Labor Day, police agencies and Putnam County STOP DWI will be sponsoring extra DWI patrols each week all summer long.

Highly visible, highly publicized efforts like the STOP-DWI High Visibility Engagement Campaign aim further to reduce the incidence of drunk and impaired driving.
