Make the Right Call

You know we take DUI enforcement seriously.  We work hard to discourage driving impaired through Overland Park all the time, but tomorrow night will be another DUI Saturation Patrol, which means we’ll be working even harder.

You might ask why dedicate so many hours to DUI enforcement.  While there are many benefits to increased patrol, the goal is preventing those serious DUI related incidents.  We want to stop those impaired drivers before they potentially hurt themselves or someone else.

Think of it this way, while it may be no fun to get a call in the middle of the night to pick up an intoxicated friend or family member from the station, that call is better than the knock at the door where a police officer tells you something tragic has happened.
