Ahead of the Labor Day holiday, the Rapid City Police Department will participate in saturation patrols during the nationwide law enforcement mobilization campaign known as ‘Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.’
This year, the campaign runs Wednesday, August 15th through Monday, September 3rd. The RCPD will be adding officers during its standard shifts to aid in traffic enforcement and specifically be on the lookout for impaired drivers. During these saturation patrols, officers of the RCPD will also be on the lookout for speed and seatbelt violations.
The campaign is a nationwide effort coordinated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and spearheaded locally by the South Dakota Department of Public Safety’s Office of Highway Safety. For more information, visit www.nhtsa.gov.
