The initiative, which ran Sept. 7 to 8, was also held in cooperation The Bureau of Patrol, The Bureau of Liquor Control, and Municipal Police agencies to address DUI-related crashes and deaths.

Of the 370 arrests made by authorities, 52 were DUI-related, while hundreds of traffic citations and warnings were also handed out.

Additionally, police seized thousands of dollars from two drivers in Beaver County, according to police. The two drivers were both stopped for allegedly driving under the influence of marijuana.
