equipment and educational materials. The unit provides specialized enforcement and innovative
strategies to reduce injury and fatal collisions in our
Driving Under the Influence (DUI) /Driver's License safety checkpoints and DUI roving patrols.
The unit also produces a “hot sheet” to notify patrol officers
to be on the lookout for identified repeat DUI offenders or
those with suspended or revoked licenses as a result of previous
DUI convictions. Court sting operations have been performed
successfully which focus on DUI offenders with suspended or
revoked licenses who continue to get behind the wheel of a
enforcement operations target red light runners, aggressive
drivers, illegal street racing and passenger protection. The
unit has been effective since its inception and during one
recent quarter red light collisions decreased 75% due to
preventive enforcement efforts.
In the future,
pro-active enforcement operations will be directed at problem
intersections with a disproportionate volume of collisions. The
unit also works to gain voluntary compliance with traffic laws
through community publicity and events.
