The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department is hoping to set up its own DWI task force in the near future. In light of recent numbers from 2012 indicating a high number of alcohol related traffic accidents the department would like to create a this task force to combat the problem. In 2012 15 fatal crashes were caused by DWIs and over 1,100 accidents were related to alcohol use.

The department’s Major Crash Unit is trying to get this task force set up. The department would like to assign six specialized officers to the DWI task force. The majority of the DWI patrols would occur at night.
