A local DUI task force will have additional officers assigned to monitor city, rural and state roads from Friday to June 30.

The task force, made up of the North Dakota Highway Patrol, the sheriffs’ departments of Mercer, Sheridan, Burleigh, Morton and Grant counties, and the police departments of Beulah, Mandan, Bismarck and Lincoln, will increase enforcement with the goal of keeping people from driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

The agencies advise people to designate a driver and get a safe ride home rather than drive after drinking.
