The Results of Drunk Driving Could Be Crushing
Groton, NY - During the Labor Day holiday, including the end of summertime and the busy Labor Day weekend, the Village of Groton Police Department and The Tompkins County Sheriff's Stop DWI is dedicated to decrease impaired driving. From August 19 through September 5, The Village of Groton Police Department will be participating in the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over enforcement period.
