DANSVILLE — Livingston County Sheriff Thomas J. Dougherty, who serves at the Livingston County STOP DWI Coordinator, has announced the Sheriff’s Office in cooperation and coordination with the Geneseo Police Department, the Mount Morris Police Department, the Nunda Police Department, the Dansville Police Department and the New York State Park Police at Letchworth are participating in a crackdown enforcement event to remove impaired drivers to coincide with Halloween.

From Oct. 30 to Nov. 4, Deputies and Officers will be saturating Livingston County roadways in hopes of removing impaired drivers before they hurt or kill themselves or innocent victims.

Livingston County along with 41 other counties in New York State will participate in the STOP-DWI Crackdown Enforcement program by utilizing funds awarded to the New York State STOP-DWI Foundation.

Sheriff Dougherty reminds Livingston County drivers to drive carefully, drive sober and do your part to help us make Livingston County roadways the safest.

“Folks who think this is about generating revenue or policing for profit certainly aren't educated on my beliefs as Sheriff,” stated Sheriff Dougherty. “This is about saving lives and making sure that families get home to their loved ones. Please do your part for public safety by making good decisions and making a plan."
