24/7 sobriety program going strong despite threats of lawsuit from ACLU

The threat of a lawsuit from the ACLU is not keeping the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office from continuing to administer its 24/7 sobriety program.

The program got its start in Campbell County in late September 2017, and since then, almost 100,000 total tests have been administered.
