Extra Lawrence police officers will be patrolling for impaired drivers this Friday, Sept. 16, according to a news release from the department.


This patrol follows a special enforcement campaign that ran from late August through Labor Day weekend.

The initiative 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.

The saturation patrol will take place throughout Lawrence city limits, according to the release. This effort, like other saturation patrols, is in hopes of encouraging community members to designate a sober driver and buckle up for every trip.

The patrol detail is funded through a Kansas Department of Transportation grant.
