Mobile Unit Used During DUI Saturation

GOLD HILL, Ore. — Law enforcement agencies in southern Oregon banded together to try and stop drunk drivers from getting anywhere once behind the wheel Saturday night. Oregon State Police brought in their DUI mobile processing unit for Saturday night’s saturation. The modified RV is set with all of the equipment needed to process drunk drivers. The mobile unit is the only one in the state and has not been used in southern Oregon in more than a year.

“What it has is intoxilyzers so we can process DUI drivers and then get the officers back out on the road a little bit quicker and it also contains holding cells and a restroom. Basically all of the facilities as a jail or detox center,” said Oregon State Police Sgt. Tyler Lee.

Extra officers were brought in during the saturation which resulted in seven drunk drivers arrested.
