Saturation patrols last month by the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office resulted in eight DUI arrests and 118 citations for traffic offenses in Sarasota County. These numbers do not include DUI arrests made during the month outside this specific initiative, according to a Sheriff’s Office report.
The patrols are conducted instead of what is referred to as a “DUI Checkpoint” and includes a number of patrol and traffic deputies working targeted zones at the same time to monitor driving activity. Because of their design, saturation patrols are mobile and take place in different areas of the county.
