Twin Lakes Police Water Patrol to participate in Operation Dry Water

operation-dry-water-logoThe Twin Lakes Police Water Patrol will be participating in the Operation Dry Water crackdown on boating under the influence.

From a media release from the department:

As the summer recreational boating season gets into full swing, Twin Lakes Police Water Patrol is ramping up its enforcement efforts as part of a national crackdown on boating under the influence. The annual three-day, heightened awareness and enforcement campaign, Operation Dry Water, focuses on deterring boaters from boating under the influence of alcohol or drugs. June 26-28, law enforcement agencies nationwide will be out in force, looking for boaters who choose to boat under the influence and removing them from the water. Increased awareness messaging about the dangers of boating under the influence, along with an increased number of officers on the water, aim to drastically reduce the number of accidents and deaths due to impaired boating … In Wisconsin it is illegal to operate a vessel with a BAC level of .08. The Twin Lakes Police Water Patrol wants to remind boaters to stay safe this summer, by staying sober on the water. Alcohol use is the leading contributing factor in recreational boater deaths. During the national weekend of heightened awareness and high-visibility enforcement, boaters can expect to see more law enforcement presence and increased messaging about this dangerous and preventable crime.”
