DUI Saturation Patrol

On Friday, June 3, 2011, from 11:00 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 throughout the city watching for impaired drivers. Drivers who appear to be impaired will be stopped and asked to perform a series of field sobriety tests. It is the police department’s goal to reduce alcohol related automobile accidents and discourage impaired driving within its community.

Last year, 950 impaired drivers were arrested by the Overland Park Police Department. A high priority is placed on removing these drivers from our roadways. Please don’t drink and drive. If you are out and choose to consume alcohol, call a taxi or have a sober designated driver.
