We are very lucky to be able to provide live and in person panels. As of 8/17/2021, the county is asking that all employees and visitors wear masks regardless of vaccination status. This is due to the increased rate of COVID-19 transmission in Ontario County.
The DWI Impact Panel Program in Ontario County is an educational awareness program for offenders convicted of driving while under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol or other high risk driving behaviors. The gender specific panels include a 45 minute educational presentation and end with a non-confrontational account from a crime victim telling their own personal story of how an impaired driver forever changed their life.
DWI Impact Panels are held throughout the year at the Ontario County Safety Training Facility located at 2914 County Road 48, Canandaigua, NY 14424.
In most cases, the sentencing court has sent over the registration form to the STOP DWI office after sentencing so there is generally no further action needed on the registrants part. Sign-in on the day of the panel begins at 6:15pm and ends at 6:55pm. The DWI Impact Panel starts at 7:00pm and no one is allowed into the session late. All sessions end around 8:30pm. Effective 04/01/2019, all sessions require a $40.00 fee. Credit card, cash, money orders or certified checks made payable to Ontario County will be accepted.
For questions, please contact Molly McNear at the Ontario County STOP-DWI office at 585-396-4114.
