Sioux Falls Gets Large Grant for DUI Patrols



Bookmark and Share

Sioux Falls police plan to use a $289,000 state grant to crack down on people who drive drunk.
   
The money is through the state Office of Highway Safety, which takes applications from law enforcement agencies across the state.

Police Chief Doug Barthel said it will be used to battle drunken driving and to enforce traffic laws in high-crash areas through so-called "saturation patrols."
   
Minnehaha County State's Attorney Aaron McGowan said his office should be able to deal with any addition to its caseload.
   
Barthel said the city has received similar grants in the past, but not for this much money. In past years, the city has gotten less than $30,000.
