NEWS RELEASE

DUI SATURATION PATROL
CENTRAL (1ST) AND NEAR NORTH (18TH) DISTRICTS

The Chicago Police Department will be conducting a DUI Saturation Patrol in the Central
(1st) and Near North (18th) Districts this weekend. The DUI Saturation Patrol will commence
at 7:00 p.m. on Sunday, August 27th, 2017 and end at 3:00 a.m. on Monday, August 28th,
2017.

The purpose of this program is to saturate a pre-designated area with roving police officers
that continually monitor vehicular traffic for signs of impaired driving. Patrols also place
emphasis on speed, alcohol-related and safety belt violations. Police vehicles equipped for
speed detection are deployed to apprehend speeding violators.

In addition, the Breath Alcohol Testing (BAT) Mobile Unit may also be deployed to allow
officers to expedite the process of charging a person with Driving under the Influence (DUI)
prior to transporting an alleged into the nearest lockup for bonding. The mobile unit also
allows for Individual Recognizance Bonds (I-Bonds) to be issued at the site of the DUI
Saturation Patrol.
