Anti-DUI Campaign During Holidays In Santa Barbara County Nets More Than 90 Arrests

Posted on Friday, December 27, 2013 3:54pm

A campaign intended to help deal with the DUI problem in Santa Barbara County during the holidays is reporting more than 90 arrests since December 13th.

The “Avoid The 12″ effort involving a dozen law enforcement agencies made 93 arrests from December 13th through midnight on December 26th.  That’s up one arrest from the same period a year ago.

The campaign is deploying sobriety checkpoints, and extra officers on patrol through New Year’s Day, with a special emphasis on Goleta, Guadalupe, Lompoc, Santa Barbara and Santa Maria this weekend.
