The Super Bowl is America's most watched national sporting event. On Super Bowl Sunday, February 1, there will be lots of game day socializing that may include drinking. That’s why the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Sheriff Scott jenkins are urging football fans to choose sides now: drinking OR driving. If you plan on drinking on Super Bowl Sunday, designate a sober driver to get you home safely.


NHTSA’s Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk campaign encourages people to make plans ahead of time that will prevent them from getting behind the wheel of a vehicle after drinking. Driving impaired could result in injury or death for you or others on the road.  


According to data from NHTSA, in 2012 there were 10,322 people killed in alcohol-impaired-driving crashes in the United States—31 percent of all crash fatalities in the nation. A driver is considered alcohol-impaired with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 or higher, the legal limit in all states. This February 1, don’t become a tragis Super Bowl stat.













On December 20, 2014, Culpeper County Sheriff’s Office hosted its third annual Santa Cop event at State Theatre of Culpeper. Approximately two dozen Culpeper Sheriff’s Deputies, as well as Culpeper Police Officers and volunteers, received 3...6 local families to share a continental breakfast, followed by a screening of Christmas movies selected by the Library of Congress. Guests watched Santa live on the big screen as he arrived at the Culpeper County Airport, and school resource officers transported him to the Theatre. Following the presentation, Santa and his elf visited with the families, as officers helped distribute wrapped presents and food baskets.

Funding for the event was obtained through a Daryle Singletary concert and the annual golf tournament held in August and private donations to the Culpeper Sheriff’s Charitable Fund, Inc. This year those contributions went to purchasing Christmas gifts for 122 of the county’s neediest children, as well as a meal, including a turkey donated by Culpeper’s Walmart and side dishes donated by Martin’s, for each family to share on Christmas Day.

Sheriff Jenkins and his staff want to thank the State Theatre for donating the venue and staffing for Santa Cop, all who participated in the golf tournament and Daryle Singletary concert, the private donors, Culpeper Walmart, and Martin’s for their contributions, which made the event a huge success.
