These enforcement initiatives aim to save lives by raising public awareness about the hazards of making bad driving decisions.
Joining Forces campaigns will include:
- Impaired Drivers/Riders
- “Click it or Ticket”

The WCSO will collaborate with other region jurisdictions for various Joining Forces activities from October 10, 2022 to September 21, 2023, thanks to this funding allocation.
