Increased Patrols

Posted: Updated:
The Texas Department of Public Safety will be out in full force over the next two weeks.

DPS troopers are increasing DWI patrols as spring break gets underway for several schools.  Troopers will focus their patrols in high risk locations.

During last year’s spring break holiday, DPS troopers made more than 1,000 DWI arrests.  Many of these were the result of increased patrols.

The increased patrols will take place until March 23rd.
