Law enforcement agencies in Pinellas County say they will be out in force this weekend looking for drunk drivers in an operation that is dedicated to the memory of a teen killed by an impaired driver in 2019.
The “DUI wolf pack” will begin at 7 p.m. Saturday and last until 5 a.m. Sunday, according to a news release from the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office on Friday.
“The operation is part of the Pinellas County Sheriff’s on-going commitment to reduce deaths, injuries and property damage associated with traffic crashes related to impaired driving,” the news release states. “The goal of the Wolf Pack is to educate people and create public awareness about the dangers of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol and any chemical or controlled substances.”
The sheriff’s office often dedicates these operations to someone killed by an impaired driver, and this weekend’s effort is in memory of Sophie Delott, a 17-year-year Pinellas County girl who was hit and killed by an impaired driver on the Indian Rocks Causeway Bridge in 2019.
