Enhanced patrols aimed at DWI issue

Staff report, editor@ennisdailynews.com

Texas law enforcement will conduct focused patrols over the Fourth of July holiday this weekend in areas deemed high-risk at times when alcohol-related crashes are most frequent.

Ennis police, for example, are using a nearly all-hands-on-deck approach to enforcement, pulling in detectives from the department’s investigative arm to run patrols, especially on July 4 itself. Det. Sgt. Mike Hopson, Ennis Police Department spokesman, said problems from years past have included drunk driving, fireworks violations and public peace disruptions that are going to be targeted this year.

“You get loud, drunk individuals with fireworks acting like fools throwing them at police cars and such,” Hopson said. “We’re not going to have that this year. It’s going to be quiet.”
