(WLUK) -- For those who are heading out Sunday evening, the Wisconsin State Patrol is reminding people to get home safely.

Officials say there will be increased patrols throughout the night looking for impaired drivers.

That includes the Brown County OWI task force.

Authorities say, for your safety and others on the roadways, it's important to have a plan.

"Were not asking people to not go out and party and celebrate, and have a good time, were just asking people to get a plan to get home safely," said trooper Scott Reignier with Wisconsin State Patrol.

As part of the effort, 12 additional officers were brought on for the holiday.
