Palm Springs Receives Grant for DUI Arrest Efforts

 California DUI

The Palm Springs Police Department has just been awarded a large sum of money for their efforts in arresting motorists who have been driving under the influence.

According to My Desert, the California Alcoholic Beverage Control rewarded the Palm Springs Police Department with $45,000. The police department has decided to use the money in training more individuals in recognizing when a patrol is alcohol- or drug-impaired as well as learning on how to reduce underage drinking at local bars and businesses.  While the efforts of the police department are impressive, the amount of money being spent on DUI enforcement, over $800,000 in grants, is not matching up to amount of individuals that are being arrested for a California DUI.

If you have been arrested for driving under the influence, contact our California DUI Defense Attorneys as soon as possible. We will investigate whether the arrest was done in accordance to specific guidelines and we will provide you with legal advice you need throughout your entire case.
