York PD Gets Statewide Recognition For DUI Arrests

Posted: Updated:

York Police Department was honored as “Agency of the Year” on Wednesday by the South Carolina Department of Public Safety for their efforts on DUI control.

In 2013, York Police Department made 86 DUI related arrests – up from 34 in 2012.

Police Chief Andy Robinson credits his officers who made a decision to focus on DUI’s when they had extra time.

“Our officers took it upon themselves last year to go out and make an extra effort to enforce DUI laws to keep the people of York and the citizens safe,” said Robinson.

The police department used extra grant funds to pay for overtime officers and add extra check-points.

They say their goal is to have no road fatalities and the easiest way to eliminate those deaths, is to eliminate drunk drivers.
