The county's Office of Drug Abuse Prevention and Stop-DWI is involved with myriad activities to further these goals, part education, part law enforcement.
County activities include:
- Funding school programs to make sure teens understand the risks of underage drinking -- risks irrespective of whether they are also driving
- Funding police programs so those who patrol Westchester roadways have the needed resources to catch those who drive while under the influence of alcohol and drugs
- Working to change state or county laws, whenever necessary, to make sure society has the tools to deal with this problem
