Serious Traffic Offender Program - STOP Team
The California Office of Traffic Safety awarded the Chula Vista Police Department a grant to combat suspended/revoked and unlicensed drivers in the City of Chula Vista.
The STOP Team objective is to cite or arrest drivers who are driving on a suspended/revoked license. The officers will serve warrants for those drivers, conduct stakeouts or "stings" on multiple DUI offenders and arrest them if they are observed driving. The goal of the STOP Team is to reduce the involvement of suspended and unlicensed drivers in felony hit and run, fatal injury, and DUI collisions.
