Prosecuting DUI's
In October of 2012, the Misdemeanor Division received a grant from the Washington Traffic Safety Commission to help prosecute all DUI cases, including those generated by Target Zero, a statewide strategic initiative. The goal is to increase education, enforcement and collaboration among agencies to achieve zero traffic deaths and serious injuries on Washington roads by 2030.
