CPSO to conduct DWI roving detail throughout parish

The following is a news release from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office.

Lake Charles, LA – The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office will be conducting a DWI roving detail throughout the parish February 7 through February 16.

A roving detail consists of extra deputies, who in addition to regularly-scheduled patrol deputies, patrol the parish strictly looking for impaired drivers driving under the influence of alcohol and/or narcotics.

It has proven to be very effective in discouraging citizens from driving while impaired and people are more likely to designate a driver when they know these details are being done.

This DWI roving detail is funded by a grant from the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission.
