All Star Nominations - Due March 18

The Department of Public Safety Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) is calling for nominations for the 2015 Minnesota DWI Enforcer All-Stars -- the state's top DWI enforcers. The All-Star nomination form must be submitted by the nominee's supervisor. All Stars will be selected based on the number of DWI arrests for 2014. Agency/city size will be a consideration to recognize those from smaller agencies. All Stars will be promoted on July 9, at Target Field during pre-game festivities prior to the Twins game.
 

Pedestrian Safety and Enforcement-Specific Media Materials

Pedestrian deaths and have remained constant over the years. Minnesota law enforcement agencies are encouraged to conduct publicized pedestrian law enforcement activity to educate communities — and the back-to-school period is a good opportunity to conduct a campaign. Available to promote an enforcement effort, or general pedestrian safety are: pedestrian safety news release (with option for back-to-school message); general pedestrian safety radio PSA scripts; enforcement-specific news release and enforcement-specific radio PSA script.

Strengthened DWI Sanctions and Ignition Interlock Law Information 

Repeat DWI offenders, and first-time offenders arrested at 0.16 and above alcohol-concentration level, must use ignition interlock or face at least one year without a license. Offenders with three or more offenses are required to use ignition interlock for three to six years, or they will never regain driving privileges.
