Chicago Police DUI Strike Force to conduct Saturation Patrols this weekend

From the Chicago Police Department website:

DUI SATURATION PATROL– Shakespeare (014th) DISTRICT

The Chicago Police Department will be conducting a DUI Strike Force Patrol in the

Shakespeare (014th) District this weekend. The DUI Strike Force Patrol will commence at 6:00

p.m. on Saturday, November 19, 2016 and end at 2:00 a.m. on Sunday, November 20, 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.
