The Las Cruces Police Department has scheduled at least one sobriety checkpoint and four saturation patrols throughout the rest of December to ensure a safe Holiday for all Las Crucens.

Sobriety checkpoints and saturation patrols are intended to reduce and eliminate the number of motorists who drive while intoxicated. Additional enforcement activities may include underage and party patrols.

As always, police encourage those who plan on drinking alcoholic beverages to use a designated driver – someone who will not be drinking alcoholic beverages – for their transportation needs.

LCPD encourages anyone who needs a safe ride home on Fridays, Saturdays or holidays between the hours of 5:30 p.m. and 3 a.m. to take advantage of Project Home, a program sponsored by Dona Ana County and Las Cruces Shuttle and Taxi. One or two people can receive a $5 taxi ride home from anywhere within Dona Ana County. For up to four people the fee is $10.

For Project Home taxi service call (575) 524-TAXI.
