Vanderburgh Co. Sheriff's Office Stepping Up Patrol on New Year's Eve

This year has brought a spike in the number of fatal crashes in Vanderburgh County. And the sheriff's office wants to make sure that number doesn't rise on New Year's Eve.

There will not be any sobriety checkpoints tonight, but more deputies will be on the streets for saturation patrols.

"More people are starting to be aware of the consequences of drinking and driving," said Chief Deputy Dave Wedding, "and being apprehended by law enforcement. We hope people keep getting the message that if you're out drinking and driving, you may be stopped by law enforcement and subsequently arrested."

Chief Deputy Wedding encourages everyone to have a good time tonight but be safe in the process. Whether it be a taxi or a designated driver, Wedding says having a plan goes a long way.
