An operation by Henderson police has resulted in the arrests of eight people arrested under the suspicion of intoxication. The operation, known as Joining Forces, was funded in part by the Nevada Department of Public Safety - Office of Traffic Safety. The crackdown was instituted between April 25 and May 9 and led to a number of other charges filed in addition to drunk driving.
Enforcement efforts of this type typically involve blocking off roadways for RIDE-style programs intended to screen for drunk drivers. However, some 330 tickets were handed out to 281 drivers in total, including citations for speeding, lack of insurance and driving with a suspended license, among others. Eight people were also arrested for drunk driving.
