Rock County Sheriff's deputies will be out in force this weekend, patrolling for drunk drivers.


Captain Gary Groelle says the $25,000 grant for overtime is directly related to traffic accidents involving alcohol. He says Rock County has shown a high level of drunk driving fatalities in the past. However, they're down this year. Groelle credits this grant and a grant for speed enforcement that enable officers to use overtime to enforce traffic laws.


The grant funds are awarded from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation Bureau of Transportation Safety.
