Putnam County to Participate in Statewide STOP-DWI THANKSGIVING “High Visibility Engagement Campaign”!

STOP-DWI Impaired Driving High Visibility Engagement Campaign runs from November 24, 2021, through November 28, 2021


Putnam County Sheriff Robert L. Langley, Jr., Town of 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 Thanksgiving weekend, millions will hit the roads eager to spend time with family and friends.
It’s one of the busiest travel times of the year, and unfortunately more people on the roadways means the potential for more vehicle crashes. In a combined effort to bring awareness to the dangers of impaired driving, prevent injuries and save lives law enforcement officers across New York State and STOP-DWI programs will be participating in special engagement efforts. The statewide STOP-DWI High Visibility Engagement Campaign starts on November 24, 2021 and will end on November 28, 2021.

The STOP-DWI Thanksgiving High Visibility Engagement Campaign is one of many statewide
initiatives promoted by STOP-DWI NY and the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee. The Statewide
STOP-DWI High Visibility Engagement Campaign also targets Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day/End of Summer, Halloween, Holiday Season, Super Bowl weekend and St. Patrick’s Day.

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