SATURATION PATROLS SCHEDULED FOR MEMORIAL DAY

Doña Ana County Sheriff Juan Hernandez will implement saturation patrols across Doña Ana County on Memorial Day.
Saturation patrols also are scheduled for Tuesday, May 27, and Friday, May 30.

Using Operation DWI grant funds, the sheriff will pay overtime to put extra deputies on the road for the saturation patrols.

Patrols will be set up in areas of the county where roads are not accommodating to checkpoints. Other target areas include roads where statistics indicate high numbers of alcohol-related accidents and/or arrests in the past.
