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 two (2) roving DWI details in the parish this week. A roving DWI detail is when there are extra deputies, in addition to regular scheduled patrol deputies, patrolling the parish strictly looking for individuals driving under the influence of alcohol and/or narcotics. Roving DWI details have 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.
The DWI roving detail is funded by Project KNOW, a grant awarded to the Calcasieu Parish Police Jury Office of Juvenile Justice Services. This grant is being used to target underage drinking.
