Saturation Patrol, Compliance Checks, and a Checkpoint in Hillsborough County

There will be several DUI enforcement events this week, starting with a saturation patrol. This means that a greater number of police officers will patrol the streets, especially keeping an eye out for any drivers who might be under the influence. A DUI checkpoint has not only been announced in advance, but you will be aware of it well before you approach the checkpoint, due to the numerous signs that will be set up. Finally, compliance checks mean that officers will be looking in on local establishments to see if they card teens who ask for alcohol, if they will sell to minors anyway, or if they will accept a bribe from a teenager seeking to buy an alcohol beverage.

Wednesday, November 13, there will be a saturation patrol in Western Hillsborough County, District III. This will go from 10:00 pm to 4:00 am.

Thursday, November 14, there will be both a checkpoint and compliance checks. The compliance checks will take place in Eastern Hillsborough County, or District II, and then will start at 7:00 pm and go to 12:00 am. The checkpoint will be set up in District IV, or Southern Hillsborough County. This is scheduled for 10:00 pm to 1:00 am. No address was given, but the checkpoint will be well-marked.

Saturday, November 16, there will be compliance checks in both Districts II and IV, or Eastern and Southern Hillsborough County. This too will be from 7:00 pm to 12:00 am.

Then next week, on Tuesday, November 19, there will another round of compliance checks. This will go from 7:00 pm to 12:00 am in District III, or Western Hillsborough County.
