Stepped Up DUI Enforcement Planned For St. Patrick’s Day In Some South Coast Communities

Posted on Wednesday, March 14, 2012 5:05pm


Police in two Ventura County communities have announced stepped up DUI enforcement efforts for St. Patrick’s Day.

Oxnard and Ventura police say they’ll have extra officers on patrol Saturday night, and Sunday morning looking for DUI drivers.

It could be a busier than usual St. Patrick’s Day, because it falls on a weekend, which means more people could be out celebrating than usual.

The extra patrols are funded with state grant money.

The departments have actually loaned officers to each other, with Oxnard officers helping Ventura with extra patrols on St. Patrick’s Day, and Ventura police helping Oxnard on Cinco De Mayo.
