The Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office is assigning extra Deputies to patrol Kanawha County roads New Year’s Eve and into the early morning hours. Each of the 23 Deputies will be tasked with searching for impaired drivers as well as answering both emergency and non-emergency calls for service.
As always, we want all to enjoy a safe holiday evening and morning. We urge all motorists who may decide to become mobile, utilize a designated driver, free cab service or stay put until becoming sober. Additionally we remind party hosts as well as commercial establishments who serve or provide alcoholic beverages to someone else, of their legal responsibilities associated with serving the alcohol.
If an impaired person decides to try their luck on the roadways of Kanawha County, they can expect to be arrested and taken to jail as Deputies will be practicing “Zero Tolerance” for impaired drivers.
