    In the first sentence, this is what you are trying to say. I am not sure if you think the police should be harsh or assume that the police is harsh on those who drink and drive. I went with the first assumption:

    "I think/opine that the police should be hard on those who drive drunk(alt: drink and drive), even if they are short on staff."

    Second it should be drunk not drunken, I am not sure about the grammar, but drunk sounds right

    He drove the car drunk.
