West Traffic Division Announces Aggressive DUI Task Force for Holidays

On Wednesday, December 22, 1999, from 4:30 p.m. until 1:00 a.m., reserve and full-time officers from West Traffic Division will join with Valley Traffic Division in a multi-bureau concentrated effort to remove intoxicated drivers from Valley Traffic Division's streets. Valley Traffic Division covers the North Hollywood, Foothill, West Valley, Van Nuys, and Devonshire communities.

On Thursday, December 23, 1999, from 4:30 p.m. until 1:00 a.m., Valley Traffic Division will team with West Traffic Division's full-time and reserve officers to patrol West Traffic's areas for intoxicated drivers. West Traffic Division covers the Wilshire, West Los Angeles, Pacific, and Hollywood areas.

On Friday, December 31, 1999, from 6:30 p.m. until 3:00 a.m., West Traffic reserve officers will join with West Traffic's DUI task force to identify and remove intoxicated and unsafe drivers from West Traffic Division's area.

"Our message is clear. Intoxicated drivers are a tremendous safety hazard on our streets. Their actions cause significant injury and deaths in our city, and targeted enforcement of these violators will make the streets safer for the community. Making arrangements for transportation, such as appointing a designated driver, is recommended. If an impaired individual drives, we will provide transportation---to jail," Captain Paul M. Kim, Commanding Officer of West Traffic Division said.

DUI task force representatives will be available for media interviews immediately after the roll call. The roll call on December 31, 1999, will be held at West Traffic Division at 6:30 p.m.

The reserve coordinator for West Traffic Division is Officer Anthony and can be contacted at 213-473-0428 or 213-473-0222 for additional information.
