CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department is letting everyone know in advance that they will be out in force on New Year's Eve and into New Year's morning.

Police will be increasing DWI enforcement city-wide through New Year's Eve, the department said in a press release. 

Motorists should expect to see DWI checkpoints during this time period along with additional officers in cars, on motorcycles, bicycles and foot who will be alert for impaired drivers.  

Additionally, there will be a full complement of staff with the department's DWI Task Force working to identify intoxicated drivers.

The DWI Task Force along with CMPD patrol officers charged 19 people with DWI over a three day period following Christmas.
