Starting next Tuesday, a team of experts will prosecute all Virginia Beach DUI cases and traffic felonies.

The team of five prosecutors and three paralegals will focus primarily on DUI offenses, including all cases involving a serious injury or death at the hands of a driver under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

“DUI is a crime that continues to threaten the safety of the Virginia Beach community, and I remain dedicated to devoting resources to combat this problem,”  Commonwealth’s Attorney Colin Stolle said in a release.

The number of DUI arrests in Virginia Beach has decreased slightly over recent years, however, there have still been more than 2,100 such arrests in 2016.
