HORN LAKE, Tenn. — Horn Lake police have received a $52,193 grant to improve enforcement of drunk driving laws, and $9,000 extra to help coordinate DUI enforcement in Northwest Mississippi.

"We've always been proactive in the enforcement of DUI offenses, but even then we've felt that the majority of impaired drivers have not been caught," Capt. Shannon Beshears said.

Beshears has been tabbed to coordinate the anti-DUI efforts of all law enforcement agencies in the Mississippi Highway Patrol district headquartered in Batesville.
