Starke County Sheriff’s Dept. To Step Up New Year Patrols

The Starke County Sheriff’s Department will be out in force the next few days seeking impaired drivers.

The New Year’s holiday is a time of heightened awareness of impaired driving and officers will be out patrolling to keep the roadways safe.

If you plan on going out for the New Year’s Eve weekend, be sure to designate a sober driver or arrange for a sober driver to take you where you need to go. If someone you know is intoxicated, do not let them operate a vehicle. If you see a possible intoxicated driver on a roadway, call 911.
