NARRATIVE: The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office will be stepping up our efforts to apprehend intoxicated and impaired drivers during the up-coming Halloween weekend, which takes place the weekend of October 28th. Deputies will be providing extra enforcement from Friday, October 28 through Tuesday, November 1st.
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.
All deputies and officers want to remind drivers “Drunk Driving. Over the Limit. Under Arrest !”
“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 Halloween weekend festivities”, stated Sheriff David A. Weaver.
The Colorado Department of Transportation grant funding is being used to assist law enforcement agencies in their efforts to enforce DUI laws within Colorado.
