    As the number of drunken driving cases reaching her desk continued to grow, Jennifer Cifaldi decided something needed to be done to stem the tide. Cifaldi, an assistant state's attorney who handles traffic offenses, went to Adams County State's Attorney Jon Barnard. The result was the institution of a DUI search warrant program. Starting in 2008, the county began to get search warrants for those suspected of DUI who refused to submit to a Breathalyzer test.
