RAMAPO, N.Y. -- The Ramapo Police Department has announced that the 2016 Memorial Day STOP-DWI enforcement crackdown period has begun and will continue through Memorial Day.

Ramapo police will be taking part in the statewide initiative by increasing DWI patrols.

The effort is part of the STOP-DWI Crackdown Weekends program launched several years ago by the New York State STOP-DWI Association.

By better coordinating and promoting county efforts, law enforcement personnel are hoping to achieve greater visibility of DWI enforcement activities throughout the state, according to officials.

Research findings demonstrate that highly visible, publicized efforts like the STOP-DWI crackdowns can further reduce the incidence of DWI, police report.

The program functions as a financially self-sustaining alcohol and highway safety program, according to officials.

STOP-DWI efforts are funded entirely from fines paid by convicted drunken drivers.

No tax dollars are used in the initiative.
