DUI Patrols in 12th District tonight


An area of the Chicago Police Department's 12th District will be saturated with roving officers who will be checking traffic for signs of impaired drivers tonight.

The DUI Saturation Patrol will begin at 7 p.m., Fri., Nov. 22, and continue to 3 a.m., Sat., Nov. 23.

Officers will be looking for speeding, alcohol-related and safety belt violations. Police vehicles equipped for speed detection will deploy to apprehend speeding violators. 

In addition, the Breath Alcohol Testing (BAT) Mobile Unit may also be deployed. That unit allows officers to expedite the process of charging a person with a DUI prior to transporting an alleged offender 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. 

The 12th District map is below.
