            Canandaigua, N.Y.    

Ontario County’s STOP-DWI program has launched an operation aimed at collecting $238,533 in delinquent and unpaid fines from driving while intoxicated charges.


Vampires, witches, zombies, goblins, peer pressure, drugs and alcohol. Some Halloween dangers are much more real than others.

Stay safe this Halloween!

For the first time three exhibits are compiled.  The original Second Front and the banner exhibits Second Front :Vietnam and Second Front: Mission Change.

Columbia County STOP-DWI, Columbia County Sheriff and Columbia County District Attorney join together with a safety message to keep you alive!  Have a Plan - Don't Drink and Drive.

Congratulations to Dr. Denis Foley recipient of the William T. Smith Award:

On 10/17/14, the Ontario County STOP-DWI program hosted a booking signing of Marianne Angelillo’ s book, “Sharing My Stones” to kick off National Teen Driver Safety Week and Red Ribbon Week.  In attendance were Ontario County Sheriff Philip Povero, Ontario County Chairman of the Board of Supervisors Jack Marren, Ontario County Youth Bureau representative Kari Wilferth and STOP-DWI Administrator

Several years ago the New York State STOP-DWI Association, Inc. launched the “STOP-DWI Crackdown Weekends.” The theory behind this initiative is that by better coordinating and promoting county efforts we can achieve greater visibility of DWI enforcement activities in New York State.

As part of the two-month project, the teens participated in interactive seminars about the facts, choices and consequences of DWI, which included  drunk driving simulations and  a talk by a DWI offender. The students were profoundly influenced by his story, and incorporated into the mural a representation of the Phoenix he had a tattoo on his arm, representing his fall and recovery.
