On Saturday Jan. 19, the Long Beach Police Department’s (LBPD) Traffic Division conducted a driving-under-the-influence saturation patrol from 8pm to 4am. During the eight-hour operation, five officers worked the northern and southern areas of Long Beach looking for impaired drivers and generated the following results:
• Five people arrested for driving under the influence
• One citation issued to an unlicensed driver
• 15 moving citations issued
• Three vehicles impounded
Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Safety Administration.
