The Omaha Police Department will take part in a nationwide “You Drink You Drive You Lose” campaign over the upcoming holiday season.

The Nebraska Office of Highway Safety has awarded $22,976.48 to fund extra officers on the streets to detect and apprehend alcohol and drug impaired drivers.

Operations will begin Aug. 18 and run through Sept. 4 at various dates and times throughout the entire city. Enforcement efforts will focus on the weekends.

The Omaha Police Department wants to ensure a safe holiday season for everyone.

"Please celebrate safely, and always have a designated driver," OPD says.
