As part of task force operations, officers will be conducting saturation patrols starting at 7 p.m. This task force is being coordinated and funded by the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety.

Saturation patrols are not relegated solely to holiday periods. Officers from various agencies team up frequently to look for and stop impaired drivers on the streets and highways. DPS has a number of specially trained DUI recognition officers that will assist tonight’s task force that will include a number of Valley law enforcement agencies.
