The Putnam County Sheriff's Department is participating in the next round of the STOP DWI campaign. The Impaired Driving High Visibility Engagement Campaign got underway on August 19th and continues through September 5th. New York State Police, Carmel and Kent Police Departments are also participating in special efforts to bring awareness to the dangers of impaired driving. Sheriff Kevin McConville says Labor Day and the end of summer is one of the busiest travel times of the year and hopes this coordinated effort will reduce the number of impaired driving-related injuries and deaths. The Campaign also targets Memorial Day, July 4th, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Holiday Season, Super Bowl weekend, and St. Patrick’s Day.
