The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office will be stepping up their efforts to apprehend intoxicated and impaired drivers during the up-coming Memorial Day Holiday weekend which takes place the weekend of May 28th. Deputies will be providing extra enforcement from Friday, May 28 at 6:00 pm through Monday, May 31, 3:00 am.
The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office along with many other agencies and the State Patrol will be out in force during this enforcement period. The Sheriff’s Office will conduct DUI saturation patrol throughout unincorporated Douglas County on roadways that have been identified as problem areas for accidents and high incidents of DUI arrests.
“I urge citizens to use the same common sense during the upcoming holiday weekend as they would any other time when faced with the issue of drinking and driving. The consequences of making the wrong decision can be expensive as well as tragic. Please have a plan in place and designate a sober driver before you get to any Memorial weekend festivities”, stated Sheriff Dave Weaver.
