Today, our agency hosted the monthly Franklin County DUI Taskforce meeting, attended by law enforcement agencies across the county. As a grant-funded agency, the Blendon Township Police Dept. is one of 23 agencies that will have additional officers on patrol, seeking out and arresting impaired drivers during this Drive Sober Or Get Pulled Over mobilization from August 18th - Sept 3rd, 2017.
During this campaign, we will be sharing some of the more memorable stories, pictures, and videos via our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/BlendonTwpPolice/) of some OVI-related incidents and crashes that have occurred right here in Blendon Township over the years
We remind you that you share the road with suspended, uninsured, wanted, reckless, distracted and impaired drivers on a daily basis. Impairment can come in many forms, and our officers diligently look for signs of impairment on every stop, day and night. We aim to catch and remove those drivers from the road before it results in a crash that impacts you or your friends and family.
Impaired driving is an easily preventable crime. Uber, Taxi, or phone a friend; plan ahead and take a cab or Uber to the bar, so you eliminate the decision to drive later.
Plain and simple, an OVI arrest is embarrassing and expensive. Don’t risk it.
