Officers with the Millcreek Police Department say they are preparing to take to the roads this weekend to monitor the driving of those celebrating the Super Bowl.

The officers are looking to specifically target those that are drinking while driving.

“I would just encourage people to be smart. Use a driving service or designated driver so you don’t get behind the wheel and endanger somebody else,” said Carter Mook, Millcreek Police Department Captain.
