Lacey, Olympia, Tenino, Tumwater and Yelm police; the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office; the Washington State Patrol; and the Chehalis and Nisqually Tribal Police will all be participating in the extra patrols.
The patrols will target intoxicated drivers, including drivers who drive impaired while using marijuana, according to the news release. The goal of the extra patrols is to keep families safe during the vacation travel season, the release states.
