The Collins Police Department has received a DUI Enforcement Grant along with an Intox 8000 to help combat driver’s under the influence.  The grant will provide extra officer on the streets at no cost to the taxpayers.  Drivers will see Collins Police checkpoints and extra patrol during the Labor Day holiday.
“We would like to thank Mississippi Office of Highway Safety Officer Director Penny Corn and her staff and Mississippi Department of Public Safety Commissioner Albert Santa Cruz and his staff for allowing this to take place,” said Police Chief Joey Ponder.
The Intox 8000 is a breathalizer machine that will be utilized at the police station to determine alcohol levels.
