— The Orfordville Police Department has received a $4,000 equipment grant from the Wisconsin State Patrol Bureau of Transportation Safety for participating in recent a nationwide drunken driving crackdown.

The crackdown from mid-August through Labor Day combined intensified law enforcement with a federally funded media campaign to deter impaired driving.


“We hope that people will voluntarily make responsible decisions about drinking and driving,” Chief Dave Wickstrum said.


“But if they choose to threaten the safety of others by getting behind the wheel while impaired, we’re fully prepared to get them off the road by arresting them.”
