TRENTON, N.J. (PBN) On New Year’s Eve, the Trenton Police Department will operate several roving DUI patrols concentrating in and around the liquor establishments and heavily traveled roadways. The New Jersey State Police will be conducting their own DUI patrols within the Capital City.

According to the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission, alcohol-related DUIs for drivers’ whose Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) is 0.10% or greater can result in the loss of a driver’s license for up to 1 year, over $4,000 in fines, and a 30-day prison sentence.

Trenton Police Department Director Steve Wilson stated, “If you plan to drink alcohol on New Year’s Eve, you should not be driving. Even if you don’t plan on drinking tomorrow, please help keep your family and friends safe on New Year’s Eve.”

Tomorrow, TPD will also be strategically deploying officers to patrol high-crime areas in the City of Trenton. The Street Crimes Unit will also be augmenting these crime prevention efforts to keep residents safe.

Mayor W. Reed Gusciora stated, “We are all wishing for a happy and healthy new year this year and TPD is working around the clock to do their part to make this a reality. Now, let’s do our part.”
