McAllen Police stepping up DWI enforcement

With Independence Day just around the bend, the McAllen Police Department is part of an effort to keep the streets safer from drunken drivers.

McAllen PD, working with the Texas Department of Transportation and other law enforcement groups across Hidalgo County, will be making a bigger push between Tuesday, June 25, 2019, and Monday, July 8, 2019.

The department’s goal is to create “a safe beginning to summer and Independence Day celebrations for all,” according to a news release.

In order to realize this goal, area departments have planned increased patrols during the two-week period using funds from the Comprehensive Selective Traffic Enforcement Grant.
