COLUMBIA — The Boone County Sheriff's Department is preparing for graduation weekend by assigning four more patrol officers to the roads to cut down on drunk driving and other alcohol-related problems, according to a release.

From May 14 through 16, the Sheriff's Department will focus on targeting problems such as underage drinking and minor possession of alcohol, Sgt. Brian Leer said.

The DWI enforcement effort is funded by Partners in Prevention Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grant, which aims to prevent alcohol-related problems.
