EFFECT OF SATURATION PATROLS FOR DWI ENFORCEMENT
The County was divided into regions and subdivided into two high arrest areas in each region. Circumferential routes around residential areas were used with high levels of saturation, one patrol car passing any site at approximately every four minutes. Although comparisons are difficult, number of contacts with motorists and number of written warnings appear to have increased, but DWI arrests, compared to baseline ASAP patrols, did not increase.
