A new DWI unit will be formed to deal with DWI cases in downtown Raleigh. Hit this link to the News & Observer story.
The Raleigh PD has created a new unit to focus just on DWI cases. DWI arrests are projected to increase from about 1500 per year to over 2000 per year – creating a bonanza for both public safety officers specializing in DWI defense and creating a larger number of DWI arrests in Wake County. The unit will be funded by a half million dollar federal grant.
