The Marana Police Department will be conducting DUI Saturation Patrols for the remainder of the calendar year. Officers, who are highly trained to detect and enforce DUI laws, will be proactively working to keep our streets safe. Our goal is to make this a safe holiday season for everyone, and prevent serious injuries and fatal collisions. Officers will be proactive in our efforts to prevent these traffic collisions from occurring, and stress the importance of having a designated sober driver and drinking responsibly. We recommend the following: • If you’re impaired, use a taxi, call a sober friend or family member, or use public transportation, so you are sure to get home safely. • If you’re not sure whether you are impaired, make the safe choice and find a sober driver or ride. • If you see an impaired driver on the road, don't hesitate to call 911 and report that driver. • If you know someone who is about to drive while impaired, take their keys and help them make other arrangements to get to where they are going safely. • Always buckle up! Wearing your seatbelt is the best defense against an impaired driver. Operational funding for these deployments is made possible through grants awarded by the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety.
