The Grand Prairie Police Department has placed additional officers on the streets in an effort to apprehend drunk drivers from Dec. 21 through New Year’s Day. The additional officers are funded by a Texas Department of Transportation (TxDot) grant to conduct this type of enforcement during this Christmas/New Year holiday season, as well as three other target enforcement periods during 2013.
As many as a half-dozen additional officers could be out on any given night during the enforcement time period.
