Overland Park Officers will be running a
DUI Saturation Patrol or 'Wolfpack' this evening, with the goal of reducing accidents
related to alcohol and to have a visible presence which is intended to
discourage drinking and driving and to reduce incidents of
DUI in Overland Park.
A Saturation Patrol or 'Wolfpack', consists of highly-experienced
DUI Officers from the Traffic Safety Unit, who are looking for DUI offenders
in Overland Park
(See my earlier post). These officers are looking for any traffic infraction for probable cause
to pull you over in the anticipation that you may have been consuming
alcohol that night, and that you could be charged with DUI.
The DUI Saturation Patrol will begin at about 10:00 p.m. tonight and continue
until early Saturday morning. Drivers who appear to be drunk will be asked
Field Sobriety Testing, and if arrested on suspicion of DUI, asked to submit to further testing
on the Intoxilyzer 8000 at the station.
Planning a night out and enjoying a drink or two? Please designate a driver
or call a taxi. These patrols and the Officers conducting them are very
highly trained and good at what they do. This type of DUI enforcement,
because of its focus and timeframe, is very effective in producing DUI charges.
