The mission of the Chemung County STOP/DWI has been to reduce the incidence of drinking and driving by:
- Increased public awareness of the risks of drinking and driving.
- Increase the identification of the drinking driver through enforcement.
- Maintaining a positive public support in getting the drinking driver off the road.
- Timely and consistent application of the legal penalties for DWI/DWAI.
Chemung County STOP DWI Program puts a critical emphasis on "special" and highly visible enforcement in conjunction with a public awareness and education program. This also includes the education of law enforcement officers in DWI laws, enforcement, and victim awareness.
