From the FCPD Website

Starting December 1, we will introduce a newly formed, nine-officer squad, to combat drunk driving throughout the county. The main goal of this unit is to reduce impaired-related crashes through aggressive enforcement and prosecution of driving a motor vehicle while intoxicated (DWI) cases. The squad consists of eight officers and one supervisor who have demonstrated a tremendous commitment to highway safety through their enforcement efforts. The officers chosen averaged an outstanding total 241 DWI arrests for the past seven years. It is our hope that the squad’s extensive experience and passion for DWI enforcement will continue to enhance the safety of our motoring public.

The squad will work 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. in four-day rotations throughout the county. Their assignments will be based on statistical data, citizen requests, and requests from station commanders, etc. The officers on the squad are assigned to the Traffic Division of the Operations Support Bureau. Squad members will receive advanced training in DWI detection, drug recognition, and effective testimony to ensure successful prosecution.

The squad’s equipment and salaries are provided by a federal grant, being administered by the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles. There is minimal cost to the county for vehicle maintenance and fuel.

Media are invited for an opportunity to meet and hear from the DWI Enforcement Squad and Captain Bob Blakley, Commander of the Traffic Division of the Operations Support Bureau, regarding the launch of the squad. Immediately following the briefing, three members of the media (based on a first-come-first-serve basis) will be able to ride-along with some of our DWI squad members as they patrol the county.

When: Thursday, December 1 at 6:30 p.m. (Doors will open at 6 p.m. to allow time for setup)

Where: Operations Support Bureau; 3911 Woodburn Road, Annandale, VA 22003

Please contact PFC Meg Hawkins, PIO for media ride-along reservations at 703-246-2253Call: 703-246-2253.
