Local law enforcement agencies plan weekend DUI saturation patrols


During the Nevada Day weekend, officers from the Reno Police Department, in conjunction with officers from the Sparks Police Department, Nevada Highway Patrol, University of Nevada Reno Police Department and Washoe County Sheriff’s Office will be conducting patrols directed at drunk/impaired drivers. This operation is being funded by a grant from the Nevada Department of Transportation, Office of Traffic Safety.

The Reno Police Department would like to remind drivers that there are several options available to them other than driving after consuming alcohol: Designate a sober driver, call a cab, take a bus or celebrate at home. If you are planning to celebrate Nevada Day at one of our local casinos, consider renting a room for the night.
