North Yorkshire Police Chief Joins Fight Against Drink/Drug Drivers
7:15am 28th June 2013
North Yorkshire Police’s Chief Constable Dave Jones, has accompanied officers from the force's Roads Policing Group as part of the summer drink drug enforcement campaign.
Mr Jones went out patrols across the Hambleton and Richmondshire areas on Wednesday 26 June 2013.
During the shift three more people were arrested on suspicion of drink driving, say North Yorkshire Police.
The latest arrests bring the total number of people arrested, since Saturday 1 June 2013, to 83.
Chief Constable Dave Jones, said: “It is disappointing that a minority of people are still not understanding the message that drinking and driving is wholly unacceptable.
“I would like to thank all those members of the public who have provided us with information which has led to the arrest and charging of offenders.
“If you do decide to risk drinking and driving, we are looking for you. Given the number of arrests my officers have made so far, there is every chance you will be caught and have to face the consequences.”
Mr Jones added: “The shift was a great insight into the dedication and skills of the police officers and police staff who keep the roads a safe place on your behalf.”
If you would like to report someone you suspect of driving while under the influence of drink or drugs, contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option 1 and pass information to the Force Control Room.
