On April 20, 2013 the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office, Special Operation Division and
members of the Patrol Division conducted saturation patrols in the vicinity of California
Maryland. The saturation patrols resulted in seven (7) traffic citations and fourteen (14)
During the Saturation Patrol’s deputies noticed many cabs services, buses
and designated drivers were being used to provide sober rides home.
Law enforcement officials and community prevention organizations believe public service
announcements, print advertisement citing, the dangers of drunk and drugged driving,
saturation patrols, sobriety checkpoints and the public’s pre-planning contributed to
increased traffic safety.
We hope this cooperative community partnership will continue to reduce drunk and
drugged driving and increase highway safety.
