OC SHERIFF SOUTH COUNTY DUI SATURATION PATROLS
Laguna Hills, Laguna Niguel, Aliso Viejo and Laguna Woods are the site of saturation patrols, courtesy of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department (unconfirmed).
Saturation patrols involve trained officers, who drive targeted roadways, Patrols are during select time periods and look for typical DUI behavior. Saturation patrol units are equipped with testing units to provide field breath tests for prosecution of DUI.
Saturation patrols are many times over more effective in apprehending DUI suspects when compared to DUI checkpoints in Orange County.
The video below shows the Irvine DUI Checkpoint last month at Culver and Irvine Center Drive, hosted by the Irvine Police Department, to increase Irvine DUI Arrests in their city. Literature from MADD and how MADD helps, as well as the guidelines and publicity for the DUI checkpoint in Irvine, are described by the Officer in Charge of the DUI Checkpoint. The officer discusses the Ingersoll case, DUI Lawyers in Orange County, the Watson advisement, and various scenarios.
I have discussed why DUI Checkpoints Don’t Work, and Are A Bad Idea, but they continue. Because of the heavy Federal, and State, grant funding, along with contributions for officer overtime, and contributions by MADD. That diverts officers into a less effective activity.
