In an effort to prevent drunk-driving fatalities, the Cache County Sheriff’s Office will be deploying extra deputies on St. Patrick’s Day this Tuesday.

According to Chief Deputy Matt Bilodeau of Cache County, the additional prevention measure comes at no extra cost to the sheriff’s office.

“We get federal money for alcohol prevention, and that’s usually focused on some of those weekends where the drinking becomes a little bit more heavy,” Bilodeau said. “And that’s where we’re able to fund extra patrols coming out.”
