LBPD, DUI task force planning weekend saturation patrols

Officers from the Long Beach Police Department’s DUI Enforcement Team, assisted by police officers from the Avoid the 100 (law-enforcement agencies) DUI Task Force, will deploy this weekend to stop and arrest alcohol- and drug-impaired drivers. DUI saturation patrols will deploy on Saturday, May 18, between 6pm and 2am, in areas with high frequencies of DUI collisions and/or arrests.
“California’s roadways are very much safer than they were before 2006,” said Office of Traffic Safety Director Christopher J. Murphy. “The Long Beach Police Department will be keeping the pressure on through enforcement and public awareness so that we can continue saving lives and reach the vision we all share– toward zero deaths, every 1 counts.”
Funding for the program is from a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
