DUI Sweep Over Holiday

KSAL Staff - November 19, 2013 11:41 am

Salina Police will be out in force next week – specifically looking for drunk drivers.

Police Lt. Russ Lamer says a special saturation patrol is planned for Tuesday, November 26th through Saturday, November 30th.

Officers from 12-shifts will be take part in the special program. According to Lamer the officers will not concentrate on one area of town, but will instead spread out throughout Salina.

The overtime hours are being funded through a grant for S.T.E.P. the Special Traffic Enforcement Program administered through the Kansas Department of Transportation.

Here we go again. Enforcing this law is part of their job that they get paid to do. Evidently the police in Salina are not doing their jobs if they were this would not be needed. This point has been raised by others and I totally agree its a waste of taxpayer monies.

I have voiced this myself on numerous occassions. If they cannot do their jobs then they should be fired simple as that. More taxpayer money should not be given to the police department for what they are getting paid to do. The argument that extra people are needed is a smoke screen to try to hide how our taxpayers monies are being wasted. If the police cannot do this without extra funds then replace them with people who will do the job they were hired to do.
