Corpus Christi Police Officers say last year from January to the end of August, officers made about 829 DWI related arrests. As for this year, officers have made an estimated 914 DWI related arrests.

However, this Labor Day Weekend CCPD will be working jointly with DPS Troopers.

Over a combined 20 CCPD officers and troopers will be patrolling all areas and roadways here in Corpus Christi.

This is a zero tolerance no-refusal operation.

Police say planning is key if you decide to go out and have a drink do not put yourself in a situation where this could bring harm to yourself or others.

Know that there are other options for you to get home safely such as paying for ride-shares, taxi services, calling family or friends.
