 The Tyler Police Department is stepping up its patrols targeting DWI drivers during Spring Break.

The department will be participating in a state grant during the Spring break week-end that will provide funding to the department to enforce DWI laws.

The enforcement detail will be on the look-out for intoxicated drivers that will start on Friday through Sunday.This program has proven to be an effective tool to combat drunken drivers. It is the intent of all Law Enforcement agencies that this effort will act as a deterrent, persuading people to avoid driving while intoxicated.
