DUI Saturation Patrol

The Overland Park, Kansas Police Department is conducting a DUI Saturation Patrol on Friday, June 8, 2012. It is the police department’s goal to reduce alcohol related auto accidents and discourage impaired driving within its community.


The DUI Saturation Patrol will begin at 10:00 PM, and the enforcement will not end until 2:00 AM. 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. Additional testing may be required after that.

The Traffic Safety Unit will hold a briefing at the Myron Scafe Building, 8500 Antioch, Overland Park, KS, prior to initiating the enforcement.
