The Minnesota Department of Public Safety will be tweeting every arrest from Friday’s patrols. Catch all the tweets here.
The Minnesota Department of Public Safety has a new tool when it comes to deterring drunken driving: Twitter. On Friday night, there will be 150 squads patrolling major corridors in the Twin Cities’ largest-ever, one-night, coordinated DWI enforcement effort. But this effort isn’t notable just because of its size; it will also offer Minnesotans the chance to follow along via Twitter. The Department of Public Safety (@MnDPS_OTS) will tweet the age and gender of those arrested for DWI using the hashtag #May10DWI. Too busy to follow along in real time? Check out the agency’s tweets and other related mentions in the live blog above. (People viewing this article on a mobile browser may not be able to view the live blog.)

Half police car, half taxi cab, it has a message for New Year's Eve drinkers: 'Choose Your Ride'
FRIDLEY, MN -- Dr. Doolittle would be proud. Local law enforcement agencies will roll out a new police vehicle Monday in Fridley dubbed a "Taxi Squad." Its front half is a squad car. Its back half is a taxi. It's set to cruise nightclubs, bars and restaurants in Anoka County starting New Year's Eve—not to give rides or make arrests but to deliver a message: "Choose Your Ride." Look for more about the Taxi Squad at Fridley Patch on Monday afternoon.
