Roll call at SMPD before DUI Checkpoint

Program Specialist/Victim Advocate for MADD-Dade County, Helen Witty, gets a round of applause at roll call from the multi-agency police officers before the team heads out for the DUI Checkpoint on Friday evening, October 19 on US 1 and SW 63 Avenue. The SMPD operation yielded 133 citations and seven arrests. Major Rene Landa said 900 vehicles received pamphlets on the dangers of drinking and driving. “We may never know what impact we had,” said Landa, “but if someone took to heart what we talked about and we were able to save one life, then it’s all worth it.”
