Greene County, Va. – Virginia’s 17th annual Checkpoint Strikeforce campaign and enforcement will be back to spread awareness and combat the rise in drunk driving deaths this holiday season. The 2018 campaign, which Governor Northam helped launch in August, combines high-visibility enforcement with researched based advertising to remind likely offenders to get a safe ride home.
“This time of year brings loved ones from all over the Commonwealth together to celebrate the holiday season,” said Sheriff Steve Smith. “With more drivers on the road heading to celebrate with families and friends, law enforcement officials are out there to apprehend would-be impaired drivers and make sure Virginians get home safely to their families.”
Complementing the high visibility enforcement, Checkpoint Strikeforce is running a surround-sound ad campaign called “Act Like It.” This campaign reminds viewers that drinking and driving is irresponsible—if you’re old enough to drink, act like it.

#ActLikeItVACheckpoint Strikeforce is back. With more cops out there, don’t risk a DUI—plan ahead and get a safe ride home.

Our Victim Witness Program had the opportunity to speak with one of the Criminal Justice classes this week at Liberty University.

Victim Witness Director Kenlyn Snow was able to do a presentation for the students that helped them to better understand alternative careers in the field of law enforcement. She also spoke to them about what specifically the Victim Witness Program is and how it is a major asset to the community.

Captain Roach assisted Ms. Snow with the presentation. The two of them look forward to presenting again at Liberty in the future!

After the presentation, the professor gave them a great tour of the campus and advised them of all of the major projects currently going on in the Criminal Justice Program there. Thanks, Liberty!

**NOTICE**

Increased holiday patrols

November is a time for thanks, a time to spend with family and friends.

It’s also one of the busiest and deadly times of the year.

We need our community to understand that it’s up to them to make the smart decision to buckle up and drive sober -- during Thanksgiving, throughout the holiday and every day. Impaired driving remains a huge problem in our country. Drive sober to help us put an end to these senseless crashes.
