West Michigan Night Patrol


KALAMAZOO (WKZO) - Concentrated efforts to crack down on drunk driving in recent years has paid off, so they will be doing more of it. They're calling it the "West Michigan Night Patrol." Several law enforcement agencies will be teaming up to make late-night drunk driving enforcement more visible thanks to a grant at the Office of Highway Safety Planning.

Rather than focusing on just a few holiday weekends during the summer, they'll instead keep up the effort for a seven-month period. Kalamazoo County Sheriff Richard Fuller says they're not establishing sobriety check points, they just want to make sure motorists know they're out there.

The Kalamazoo County Sheriff's Office, the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety, the Kalamazoo Township Police, Portage Police, WMU's Department of Public Safety, and the Michigan State Police will all take part in the effort.
