LPD to Deploy Extra Officers Over Holiday Weekend


The Lewiston Police Department is reminding everyone not to drink and drive over the Independence Day holiday.

According to a press release, in the past three years, there have been 34 alcohol related crashes resulting in injury or death in Lewiston. During that three year period, there were 509 DUI arrests.

Lewiston Police will have extra officers on duty this weekend specifically looking for impaired drivers. Lewiston Police have a zero tolerance for impaired drivers.

If alcohol will be a part of the holiday weekend, LPD urges the public to plan ahead and have a sober driver to get you home. If you are the designated driver, take the job seriously, and do not drink. If you have a friend or family member who has been drinking, do

not let them drive and take their keys.
