Busy New Year’s Weekend

Busy New Year’s Weekend

The Palisades Interstate Parkway transitioned from 2016 to 2017 with a spike in activity thanks to the efforts of our proactive officers.  Between 1900hrs on Friday, December 30th and 0700hrs on 1900hrs on Monday, January 2nd officers issued 240 traffic violations and made 23 arrests.  Of those arrests were 7 DWI’s, 1 handgun, and the remaining 15 were for narcotics.  It should be noted that 5 of 7 the DWI arrests were made between 2am and 5am on New Year’s Eve.
