Ryan Anglim is reporting in The Daily Mail the Greene County STOP-DWI Law Enforcement Plan for 2015 was approved Wed., Jan. 7, by the Greene County Legislature. The countywide program is under the direction of the Greene County Sheriff’s Office. The program budget is just under $139,000, and is supported by the fines levied by the county following any DWI-related offense. All courts in the county participate in the program. Local law enforcement agencies this year will received funds for saturation patrols during periods of heavy traffic, continued funding of overtime and additional STOP-DWI patrols and road checks, exhibits at the local fairs, a youth fair, DARE events, and more. Greene County Sheriff Greg Seeley said the program’s goal is to mainly educate, rather than just filling up the jail. Read the full story in The Daily Mail.
