ACSO to increase DUI enforcement


The Archuleta County Sheriff’s Office (ACSO) will be increasing DUI enforcement from now until midsummer in conjunction with the High Visibility Enforcement Campaign and the Law Enforcement Assistance Fund.

“The Law Enforcement Assistance Fund is state funds financed from DUI offenses for community substance abuse prevention programs and projects,” reads the website for Colorado’s Department of Human Services. “Monies allocated to the Office of Behavioral Health Prevention are used to establish a statewide program for the prevention of driving after drinking, training of teachers, health professionals, and law enforcement in the dangers of driving after drinking, preparing and disseminating educational materials dealing with the effects of alcohol and other drugs on driving behavior, and preparing disseminating education curriculum materials for use at all levels of school.”
