The Juneau County Sheriff’s Office in Mauston and the Elroy, Mauston, and New Lisbon police departments have released the results of their Highly Visible Enforcement saturation patrols that took place Feb. 20-21.

The patrols are part of a comprehensive public- education/awareness campaign against drunk driving.

The results showed that no drunk driving arrests were made.

Other results show two speeding violations, four traffic sign or traffic light violations, one drug violation, five other violations and 32 warnings.

The agencies say their goal during the Highly Visible Enforcement saturation patrols and for the rest of year is not to write more tickets but to convince drivers not to drive while impaired.

For more information, contact Chief Tony Green of the Elroy Police Department, Capt. Gary Pedersen of the Juneau County Sheriff Office, Lt. Michael Zilisch of the Mauston Police Department, and Chief Brent Granger of the New Lisbon Police Department.
