WCSO reports increase in DUI arrests; crackdown planned
Local law enforcement will be cracking down on drunk drivers after reporting a recent increase in DUI arrests over the last two weeks.
The Washoe County Sheriff's Office announced a joining forces campaign starting Friday, May 1 that will go through May 18.

Other agencies taking part include the Nevada Highway Patrol, Reno Police Department, Sparks Police Department, and University of Nevada, Reno Police Services.
