The Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office will hold a press conference to introduce the new 24/7 Sobriety Program on Monday, April 30, 2012. This program allows Judges to order individuals charged with 2nd or subsequent DUIs to the Jail twice a day. The purpose of the program is to have defendants report to the jail in the morning before work, and evening after work to submit a sobriety breath test.
Sheriff Gootkin will be accompanied by local Police Chiefs, Lewis and Clark County Sheriff Leo Dutton, Montana Highway Patrol Colonel Mike Tooley, and Commissioner Steve White. We will explain the program to the public and answer any questions. The conference will be held in the Jail community room at 9:00 AM. We look forward to seeing you there.
