STPSO Awarded $148,099 for Underage Drinking Enforcement

As an ongoing commitment to keeping our roadways safe, the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office
has been awarded $148,099 by the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission to be used as part of the statewide Fatal and Injury Crash Reduction Effort. The primary objective of this effort is to reduce fatal and injury crashes on Louisiana roadways, and funds will be used to supply additional manpower to conduct extra seat belt enforcement, DWI patrols and underage alcohol enforcement in St. Tammany Parish.

“Our goal is to save lives by using these funds to raise awareness with the goal of reducing the number of fatal and injury related crashes in St. Tammany,” Sheriff Randy Smith said. “We want people to know that we are out there every day looking for drivers that are under the influence, and we hope the checkpoints this funding provides will serve as a deterrent,” Sheriff Smith said. “If you choose to consume alcohol, don’t drive. Have a designated driver or call a cab. If all options fail, call us and we will find you a safe ride.”
