The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office conducts monthly saturation patrols to remove dangerous, uninsured or impaired drivers from local roadways to keep motorists safe.
Because of our commitment to keep the public aware of these ongoing education and enforcement efforts, results are provided at the end of each month and dates for the next month’s activity are announced.
Deputies conducted a special department-wide Halloween saturation patrol from October 25-November 1 which resulted in 27 DUI arrests, 43 seatbelt citations, 37 suspended license citations, 104 citations for not having proof of insurance, 301 speeding citations and 17 citations for reckless driving.
In November, saturation patrols will be conducted on November 9th, 15th, 16th, 23rd, 27th and 30th. This initiative is conducted in partnership with Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) and supported through a grant from the Florida Department of Transportation.
