Orange 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.  

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.

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.

Be careful on Friday and Saturday in Orange County – let people know to expect traffic tie ups near the checkpoints, and save someone from making a bad decision this weekend.
