DUI Saturation Patrol

On Friday, March 25, 2011, from 7:00 pm to 3:00 am, the Overland Park Police Department will conduct a DUI Saturation Patrol. A team of Traffic Safety Officers will be deployed in strategic areas throughout the city watching for impaired drivers.

Drivers appearing to be under the influence will be stopped and asked to perform a series of field sobriety tests. Last year, 950 drivers were arrested by the Overland Park Police Department for Driving Under the Influence.

The Department places a high priority on removing impaired drivers from our roadways. Please don't drink and drive. If you are out and choose to drink, call a taxi or have a designated driver.
