DUI Strike Force Out In 19th District Tonight

Fasten your seatbelt, have a designated driver if you plan to drink, and be sure you've got your car insurance and registration with you. That should be every time you drive, but especially tonight, when the CPD's DUI Strike Force will be out in the 19th District (Fullerton to Lawrence, the lake to the river). The Strike Force begins at 7pm tonight and ends at 3am Sunday.

The press release says, "The purpose of this program is to saturate a pre-designated area with roving police officers that continually monitor vehicular traffic for signs of impaired driving. Patrols also place emphasis on speed, 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 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 Strike Force Patrol."
