********************************************                    “You Drink and Drive, You Lose”
The Ralston Police Department is pleased to announce that the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety has approved an overtime grant of $2,000 for increased patrols starting August 17, 2018, through September 3, 2018. 

The grant will pay for the Ralston Police Department to have additional officers working 41 overtime hours on the streets during this grant period.  Through saturated patrols and enforcement of all traffic laws, officers’ emphasis will be on recognizing and stopping impaired drivers.  Officers will be cracking down on alcohol-related offenses such as Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol or Drugs, Minor In Possession, Open Container, and Minor DUI

The “You Drink and Drive, You Lose” crackdown is a national effort to reduce the number of motorists injured or killed due to alcohol-related crashes. This campaign will run through the Labor Day weekend in response to the high number of vehicles traveling during this peak travelling time.

The Ralston Police Department is proud to team up with the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety in their “You Drink and Drive, You Lose” campaign.
