Investigative Unit celebrates 80 years PDF Print E-mail

Thursday, 26 December 2013 10:09
The men and women of the Ohio Investigative Unit on Monday celebrated 80 years of service to Ohio.
While prohibition ended on Dec. 5, 1933, General Code of Ohio 6064 did not become effective until Dec. 23, 1933.
Included in the code was the creation of the Ohio Department of Liquor Control to oversee the production and sale of alcoholic beverages in the state. The enforcement division fell under then Department of Liquor Control and was charged with conducting investigations of licensed and unlicensed liquor sales locations throughout the state. The agents were also tasked with stopping illegal sales, distribution and manufacturing of beer, and alcohol for public consumption.
In 1995, the enforcement division was transferred to the Ohio Department of Public Safety. Over the years more enforcement efforts have been added including food stamp and tobacco enforcement. In 1999, the enforcement division was renamed the Ohio Investigative Unit. On January 1, 2013, OIU was integrated into the structure of the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol will be out in full force this holiday season removing dangerous and impaired drivers in an effort to reduce fatal and injury crashes.
Last year in Ohio, seven people died in OVI-related crashes between Christmas and New Year's.
"The holidays can be one of the most dangerous times of the year due to an increase in impaired driving," said Col. Paul A. Pride, patrol superintendent. "Drivers need to designate a sober driver, buckle-up and keep their focus on the road to ensure that everyone celebrates the holidays safely."
Last year the patrol arrested 92 drivers for OVI during the two-day Christmas holiday.
The public is encouraged to continue using #677 to report dangerous or impaired drivers, as well as drug activity.
