DUI Task Force

dui-27In 1989 the District Attorney’s DUI Task Force began Organized Sobriety Checkpoints.

This program is funded through a grant from the PA State Department of Transportation. The Erie County DUI Program began in 1988 under District Attorney William R. Cunningham. In 1989 the Erie County District Attorney had taken the lead in countywide enforcement efforts and placed a DUI coordinator within the office. As of today the Erie County District Attorney’s DUI Task Force is the oldest operating task force in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The late District Attorney Brad Foulk further increased the presence of the DUI Task Force by providing assistance to the Pennsylvania State Police (PSP) patrols during the holiday periods and the program is being continued by District Attorney Jack Daneri. The Task Force not only makes arrests for DUI, but also underage drinking, drugs and other violations of law. For additional information on the DUI Program you can visit www.dot.state.pa.us
