Last week, the Chicago Police Department’s DUI Strike Force was responsible for 129 citations. One of them was for DUI. Here is the link to their press release.
Obviously, this is a big waste of police resources and a big source of harassment for motorists.
Nevertheless, they are back in force again this weekend.
From DNAInfoChicago (Kelly Bauer, reporting):
Police will crack down on drunken drivers in the Bridgeport-based Deering District this weekend.
Police will lead a DUI Strike Force Patrol from 7 p.m. Friday to 3 a.m. Saturday.
Officers will look for drivers who are drunk, speeding, not wearing their seat belts and other violations.
Oddly enough, this is not on the CPD’s official web site. However, they do have a press release on their site about another patrol the following day:
The Chicago Police Department will be conducting a DUI Strike Force Patrol in the Ogden (10th) District this weekend. The DUI Strike Force Patrol will commence at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 11, 2016 and end at 3:00 a.m. on Sunday, June 12, 2016.
