DUI Wolf Pack Hunts in Pinellas
The wolf pack will target drunken and impaired drivers across Pinellas County tonight.
PINELLAS COUNTY – In an effort to reduce DUI related injuries and deaths, the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office said deputies and local law enforcement will join together this weekend and conduct a wolf pack operation in Pinellas County.
The operation will begin at 7 p.m. today (Dec. 20) and continue until 5 a.m. Saturday (Dec. 21).
Pinellas deputies, in conjunction with the Florida Highway Patrol, Largo Police Department, Pinellas Park Police Department and the St. Petersburg Police Department will monitor traffic throughout the county. They will maintain a proactive profile over the weekend on Pinellas’ highly-traveled roadways.
The operation is part of the Pinellas County sheriff’s ongoing commitment to reduce deaths, injuries and property damage associated with traffic crashes related to impaired driving. The goal of the wolf pack is to educate people and create public awareness about the dangers of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol and any chemical or controlled substances.
The DUI wolf pack is dedicated to the memory of 86-year-old Harvey Delzer and 59-year-old Edward Delzer. On July 28, 2018, they were stopped at a red light in their vehicle at Park Blvd and 104th Lane in Seminole. An impaired driver rear ended their vehicle at the red light.
Mothers Against Drunk Driving, Chaplains Outreach Ministries and the Suncoast Safety Council will be supporting law enforcement during the operation. Members of MADD will be present to support their mission of a Nation of No More Victims.
The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office will be conducting wolf packs continuously throughout the year.
