Upland Borough Police Department to Conduct Operation Safe Holiday Enforcement

Police Urge Drivers to Celebrate Responsibly

Upland Borough, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT), Upland Borough Police Department and Southern Delaware County Task Force will conduct impaired driving enforcement operations as part of Operation Safe Holiday which runs from November 23, 2022 through January 1, 2023.

These operations will include increased law enforcement and roving DUI patrols. Law Enforcement urges the public to read warning labels on prescription or over the counter medications and celebrate responsibly. Impaired drivers are incapable of safe driving operations regardless of the substance; illegal or legal.

The Southern Delaware County Task Force is comprised of the following police departments:

Chester City, Upland Borough, Bethel Township, Glenolden Borough, Chester Township, Aston Township, Ridley Township, Collingdale Borough, Eddystone Borough, Sharon Hill Borough and Upper Providence Township

The task force is committed to reducing the number of impaired driving crashes, injuries, and fatalities in Delaware County.

Methods used to achieve this goal include:

  • Educating the public on the Pennsylvania Vehicle Code and DUI laws.
  • Deterring motorists from driving after consuming alcohol or drugs.
  • Apprehending those who violate the laws of the Commonwealth.

The operations are funded in part by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s statewide distribution of federal funds from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
