Cowan Police Department FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Sergeant Jerod Bradford 01/24/2017 COWAN POLICE DEPARTMENT INCREASES DUI ENFORCEMENT DURING SUPER BOWL WEEKEND Cowan Police Department is partnering with the Tennessee Highway Safety Office (THSO) to enhance impaired-driving enforcement during the Super Bowl weekend. The THSO’s Booze It & Lose It campaign is a statewide mobilization to prevent impaired-driving crashes, injuries, and fatalities. Law enforcement agencies across the Cumberland Region will be conducting areas of saturation along the highways within their jurisdictions. These saturations will begin at 6:00 p.m. on Friday, February 3, and last until Sunday, February 5, at 11:59 p.m. Increased state and local messaging about the dangers of drunk driving, coupled with sobriety checkpoints and saturation patrols, aim to drastically reduce alcohol-impaired driving. “During Super Bowl weekend last year, there were 76 crashes and eight fatalities related to impaired driving across Tennessee,” said THSO Director Vic Donoho. “During the 2015 Super Bowl weekend, there were 77 crashes and six fatalities related to impaired driving. This year, we want zero. Let’s work together to make sure everyone gets home safely.” A single DUI conviction can cost an individual $5,000 or more, in addition to jail time. An offender could also be required to attend drug and alcohol treatment or to install an ignition interlock device inside his/her vehicle. Any penalty imposed by law pales in comparison to the injury or death of a loved one. The THSO provides grant funding to support Cowan Police Department efforts during the Booze It & Lose It enforcement campaign.
