Thirty-one people were arrested for drunk driving-related offenses over the Labor Day weekend by officers from several Dutchess County law enforcement departments as part of the "Driver Sober or Get Pulled Over" campaign, according to the Dutchess County Sheriff's Department.

The campaign, which ran between Aug. 18 and Sept. 4, included officers from the the sheriff's office, the New York State Police, the City of Poughkeepsie Police Department, the Town of Poughkeepsie Police Department, the Town of Hyde Park Police Department, the Town of East Fishkill Police Department and the Village of Red Hook Police Department.

In all 32 arrests were made, with 31 impaired-driving related, said Lt. Frank LaMonica Jr.

The stepped-up details were funded by the Governor's Traffic Safety Committee and the NYS STOP-DWI Foundation, with the objective to revitalize and enhance the visibility of the STOP-DWI Program.

“Local law enforcement ramped up efforts over the Labor Day Crackdown resulting once again in an eye opening number of impaired driving arrests," said Dutchess County STOP-DWI Coordinator William C. Johnson. "The 'Drive Sober or get pulled over' campaign is a clear reminder that it is everyone’s responsibility to refrain from impaired driving or face the consequences.”
