24/7 Sobriety Program

Welcome to the 24/7 Sobriety web page. We are pleased to be able to share the details of this program to all South Dakotans. This is more than just a program but a commitment to working with chronic DWI defenders into changing their behavior and prevention of additional DWI arrests.

The program has one main goal for each DWI defendant and that is sobriety 24 hours per day and 7 days per week. This started as a pilot program in January 2005. We currently work with 67 participating agencies, including police departments, sheriff's offices, and the Unified Judicial System.

This site includes a wide array of resources, varying from program statistics, overviews of the program, contact information and links to additional information.

Our hope is that this program has real impact on not just the defendants, but their families and employers as well. Thank you for visiting our web page and your interest in this project. We hope you find it useful.
