CLOVIS - Officers from the Clovis Police Department’s Traffic Division will be deployed this Memorial weekend to stop and arrest alcohol and drug-impaired drivers as part of the Department’s ongoing traffic safety campaign. DUI Saturation Patrols will be deployed in areas with high frequencies of DUI collisions and /or arrests.

High Visibility Enforcement using both DUI Saturation Patrols has proven to lower the number of persons killed and injured in alcohol or drug impaired crashes. Research shows that crashes involving an impaired driver can be reduced by up to 20 percent when well-publicized proactive DUI operations are conducted routinely.
