SFPD Conducts Saturation Patrol

SFPD Conducts Saturation Patrol
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

With the roads full of drivers during a busy Friday night, the Sioux Falls Police Department had extra cars last night to help keep the roads safe. The department had sixteen extra officers patrolling the roads.

The patrol officers were looking for impaired drivers, speeders, and seat belt use.

The department doesn't have the official numbers yet, but they said a "fair amount" of arrests were made. KELOLAND News rode with an officer for almost two hours last night. During that time, there were four traffic stops and two tickets issued to a driver and a passenger not wearing a seat belt. Lieutenant Troy Lubbers says officers have a different emphasis each patrol, but they all are trying to accomplish the same thing.

“Primarily our first one is safety-oriented goals. That way we want to go out there and try to reduce accidents. Make the roadway safer for the motoring public,” Lubbers said

The saturation went from 6:00 p.m. Friday to 2:00 a.m.

We'll hear from Sioux Falls drivers about what they would like the police department to look out for on the roads, tonight on KELOLAND Weekend News at 10.
