Strafford Police Department Youth Alcohol Enforcement Campaign 
Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign will target substance impaired drivers

  Strafford, MO - Local and state law enforcement will be out in full force as part of the annual nationwide Youth Alcohol Enforcement Crackdown.  This will include high-visibility enforcement throughout southwest Missouri and will run from May 2-13, 2019.
  Every year approximately one third of all motor vehicle traffic deaths involve one or more substance impaired drivers.  In 2018, 186 people were killed and 532 seriously injured on Missouri roadways in crashes that involved at least one substance impaired driver.  That equals approximately one substance impaired driver involved fatality every two days.  National driving campaigns such as 'Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over' decrease fatalities by as much as 20 percent.  By joining this nationwide effort, we will make Strafford's, roadways safer for everyone.
  The Strafford Police Department strongly encourages driver's to make prior arrangements to get home safely.

Please note, the office phone number is not monitored 24 hours a day.  If you need to speak with an officer, contact 9-1-1
