Chicago Police to do DUI saturation patrols this weekend

The Chicago Police DUI Strike Force will be out doing saturation patrols in Wicker Park, Bucktown and Logan Square this Saturday night.

From their press release:

The Chicago Police Department will be conducting a DUI Strike Force Patrol in the
Shakespeare (14th) District this weekend. The DUI Strike Force Patrol will commence at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 23, 2016 and end at 3:00 a.m. on Sunday, April 24, 2016.
The purpose of this program is to saturate a pre-designated area with roving police officers that continually monitor vehicular traffic for signs of impaired driving. Patrols also place emphasis on speed, alcohol-related and safety belt violations. Police vehicles equipped for speed detection are deployed to apprehend speeding
violators.
In addition, the Breath Alcohol Testing (BAT) Mobile Unit may also be deployed to allow officers to expedite the process of charging a person with Driving under the Influence (DUI) prior to transporting an alleged into the nearest lockup for bonding. The mobile unit also allows for Individual Recognizance Bonds (I-Bonds) to be issued at the site of the DUI Strike Force Patrol.
