Chula Vista - Officers from the Chula Vista Police Department conducted a DUI Saturation Patrol on Saturday February 7, 2009 in the City of Chula Vista from 6 pm to 2 am. Due to inclement weather the previously scheduled DUI checkpoint was changed to the roving saturation patrol.
The operation resulted in 18 standardized field sobriety tests being performed, 11 arrests for DUI, 2 drug related/criminal arrests, 19 vehicle impounds, and 46 citations for various vehicle code violations.
The Chula Vista Police Department is continuing its efforts to keep drivers in our community safe by deterring and detecting impaired drivers.
Funding for this operation was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
