PINELLAS COUNTY – Pinellas County deputies will conduct a DUI saturation patrol this weekend.

Deputies will maintain a proactive profile over the weekend on the highly-traveled roadways of Pinellas County.

The saturation patrol will run from 7:00 p.m. on Friday, December 31, 2021 until 5:00 a.m. on Sunday, January 2, 2022.

Saturation patrols are a part of the Pinellas County Sheriff's on-going commitment to reduce deaths, injuries, and property damage associated with traffic crashes related to impaired driving.

The goal of saturation patrols are to educate people and create public awareness about the dangers of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol and any chemical or controlled substances.

Join us in “Leading the way for a Safer Pinellas” by never driving after drinking, instead take the following steps to have a safe and happy weekend:

Plan a designated driver or a safe way home ahead of time.

If you are impaired, call a taxi or ride-sharing service, or call a sober friend/family member to get you home safely.

The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office will continue DUI enforcement throughout the year.
