On April 20, 2022, between the hours of 5:00 p.m. and 11:30 p.m., Oxnard officers held a DUI and driver’s license checkpoint on Oxnard Blvd. at Glenwood Drive. Specially trained officers also conducted a citywide DUI enforcement saturation. The checkpoint and DUI saturation patrols resulted in two DUI arrests, three misdemeanor/felony warrant arrests, and 62 traffic citations.

Checkpoint locations and DUI saturation patrols are based on a history of crashes and DUI arrests. The primary purpose of checkpoints is not to make arrests but to promote public safety by deterring drivers from driving impaired.

Funding for this checkpoint and DUI enforcement patrols was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
