Around here, you better drive sober or get pulled over.
That's the motto of the current six-week DUI emphasis control, multi-agency project that kicked off last Wednesday in East Pierce County.
The program puts additional law enforcement out on the road to make DUI arrests. Participating officers plan to focus on East Pierce County in a patrol event on Black Friday.
Agencies participating include Sumner, Bonney Lake, Puyallup, Tacoma, University Place, Lakewood, Gig Harbor, Steilacoom, Fircrest, Fife and Dupont police, along with the Washington State Patrol and the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department.
