DUI Patrols Planned

KSAL Staff - September 10, 2013 10:53 am

Salina Police are planning to crack down on drunk drivers following the Festival Jam Thursday evening.

Salina Police are planning for two special DUI patrols in the next two weeks.

Police Lt. Russ Lamer says two special saturation patrols are planned for September 20th and September 27th.

Four additional officers and a supervisor will be on duty. The officers will be on patrol from 11:00 Friday night through 3:00 Saturday morning on both weekends.

According to Lamer the officers will not concentrate on one area of town, but instead will spread out throughout Salina.

The overtime hours are being funded through an Impaired Driver Deterrence Program grant administered through the Kansas Department of Transportation.

Hey Brownback how about cutting the budget of the Kansas Department of Transportation? They evidently have more money than they need paying these police departments extra to do the job they already being paid to do. Lamer did not say what he is dressing up as but a suggestion would be a bar fly.

Here I am again charles ks Sadler complaining once again about you trolling on here. Todd P. if this guy is not part of your media group why are you not banning him from here? This is a very good question for you to answer as this guy goes way back when he had 50 different id’s and continues to make the same comments to others on here.

Let me comment on this story so little charlie can troll me. I agree the police are paid to enforce the laws 24/7 but they do a poor job of it. Normal patrolling would find the duI people if the patrol cars were not parked somewhere else when the clubs and bars empty. Never seen a job with so much down time to eat donuts and be on their cell phones.

Anyone who gets busted on these two weekends can’t say they weren’t warned…

True but why are the police looking for this all the time?
