Extra Lawrence police officers will be patrolling for impaired drivers Friday, according to a news release from the department.
The patrol will take place throughout city limits, according to the release.
The patrol detail is funded through a grant with the Kansas Department of Transportation. It will “place extra officers in the field specifically looking for motorists who exhibit signs of impaired driving and other traffic violations,” according to the release.
Officers will perform sobriety field testing for drivers who are stopped for traffic violations and show signs of drug or alcohol consumption.
Friday’s will be the second DUI saturation patrol this month. The last one was May 5.
