Under the grant, funds will allow the enforcement of Texas “Drink, Drive, Go to Jail program.

The release goes on to say that throughout 2024 extra patrol officers will be on the streets, especially during the holidays which are known to have a high number of alcohol-related crashes.

The Sheriff’s Office is asking that citizens do not get behind the wheel of a car, if you have consumed alcohol.
