You Drink, You Drive, You Lose

Not if, But When

If you drive drunk in Grand Prairie, it is not a matter of if you will be caught, but when you’ll be caught.

Thirty-seven percent of all traffic accidents in Grand Prairie are alcohol/drug related. To combat this, the Grand Prairie Police Department has increased DWI patrols by 200%.

The Grand Prairie Police Department is the only law enforcement agency in Texas to operate a fully funded DWI Unit paid for by the Texas Department of Transportation.

Grand Prairie was selected to receive this grant because of the department's aggressive approach to DWI enforcement, as well as a need for increased DWI enforcement due to a high number of collisions involving alcohol in recent years.

Officers assigned to this unit primarily look for intoxicated drivers, conduct traffic enforcement and enforce other alcohol-related laws. These officers are also accident investigators and are certified drug recognition experts.
