The City of Henderson Police Department will begin an enhanced traffic enforcement program targeting impaired drivers beginning Oct. 12, running through Nov. 2.

As part of the Joining Forces program, law enforcement agencies statewide will work together in an effort to help bring greater awareness to the importance of safe and sober driving. During this time, Henderson Police will dedicate extra officers for enforcement with the aim of reducing tragedies caused by people driving while impaired.

Henderson Police always urge the public to use a designated sober driver, taxi, or a ride-sharing company to avoid the potentially devastating impacts of drunk or impaired driving.

The goal is to save lives by increasing public awareness about the dangers of making poor choices while driving. Nevada’s goal is Zero Fatalities on our roads.

To reach this goal it is critical to always drive sober. Visit their website for more information.
