REMINDER: DUI Saturation Patrol Tonight

Beginning tonight at 10:00 PM, the Overland Park Police Department will be conducting DUI Saturation Patrol. This event will last until 2:00 AM and will consist of eight officers and one sergeant. 

DUI Saturation Patrols, not to be confused with DUI Checklanes, are for the sole purpose of arresting drivers who are under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. The officers assigned to the Saturation Patrols have significant experience in DUI apprehension and will be patrolling heavily traveled streets and highways.

It is the police department’s goal to reduce alcohol related auto accidents and discourage impaired driving within the community. So far through the end of August this year we've arrested a total of 471 impaired drivers.

Please don’t drink and drive. If you are out and choose to consume alcohol, call a taxi or have a sober designated driver.
