The DUI Saturation Patrol will commence at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 4th, 2017 and end at 2:00 a.m. on Sunday, March 5th 2017.
In addition to monitoring vehicular traffic for signs of impaired driving, patrols also place emphasis on speed and alcohol-related and safety-belt violations. Police vehicles equipped for speed detection are deployed to apprehend speeding violators. In addition, the Breath Alcohol Testing (BAT) Mobile Unit may also be deployed to allow officers to expedite the process of charging a person with Driving under the Influence (DUI) prior to transporting an alleged violator into the nearest lockup for bonding. The mobile unit also allows for Individual Recognizance Bonds (I-Bonds) to be issued at the site of the DUI Saturation Patrol.
