Submitted by Deputy Robert Rotherham, Douglas County Sheriff’s Office
Traffic Unit, 303-663-7703
The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office will be stepping up their efforts to apprehend intoxicated and impaired drivers during the Labor Day weekend. Starting on Thursday, September 3 and going through September 7, between the hours of 8:00 pm and 3:00 am, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, utilizing LEAF grant funds, will be conducting DUI Saturation Patrols throughout unincorporated Douglas County.
These patrols will be on roadways that have been identified as problem areas for accidents and high incidents of DUI arrests.
“It is very important for the driving public to aware of the dangers of drinking and driving, even if they believe they are okay to drive. Best plan for a safe holiday weekend would be to designate a non-drinking driver or celebrate at home and stay off the roadways,” stated Sheriff Dave Weaver.
