Announcing a County-wide Approach

It is the goal of this Office, working in conjunction with local law enforcement agencies and Albany County STOP DWI, to redefine the present county-wide strategy and incorporate a tougher stance on enforcement of the drinking and/or drugged driving laws as well as compliance by the tavern, bar, and store owners with the ABC laws.  This Office has already begun working on this goal through the creation of the Albany County District Attorney’s Office DWI Guidelines, through increased training of police and prosecutors, and through Joint Task Force stings on area establishments and unannounced checkpoints.
