The 24/7 Sobriety program is making headway in reducing the number of repeat DUI offenders since the start of the program nearly 2 ½ months ago. Eight counties have so far opted to launch the program. They are: Yellowstone, Flathead, Butte-Silver Bow, Anaconda-Deer Lodge, Powell, Lincoln, Big Horn and Custer. A total of nine counties, including Lewis and Clark, are now running 24/7. Patrol Captain for the Missoula County Sheriff’s Office Brad Giffin says they are working on putting the program into place in Missoula County and explains why it has not been set up yet.

In addition to the nine counties who have the program,  another 12 are working toward launching their own programs in February. The 2010 Montana Highway Patrol annual report stated that the Strategic Traffic Enforcement  Team (STET) of the Montana Highway Patrol made 54 DUI and Drug arrests last year.
