Cops reveal results of DWI enforcementHoliday weekend efforts a success

Rhode Island State Police and the Rhode Island Police Chiefs' Association have announced the results of their DWI crackdown over the holiday weekend.

State Police teamed up with the state's Municipal Police Departments over New Year's to keep roadways safe through heavy enforcement against impaired driving.
Municipal Police Departments booked 17 arrests for driving while intoxicated on December 31, 2011, and January 1, 2012. State Police made 11 arrests for DWI during those two days.

"The Rhode Island State Police continues to prioritize DUI enforcement," said Col. Steven O'Donnell, Superintendent of the RI State Police in a news release. "We stress prevention, but those who decide to endanger our citizens by operating drunk should pay the price for doing so."

Police say the increased enforcement efforts will continue throughout the year
