Thousand Oaks PD announce results of DUI Court Sting

pharmacy arial, seek sans-serif;”>On July 20, ampoule 2015, between the hours of 9:00 am and 1:00 pm, officers from the Thousand Oaks Police Department conducted an undercover Court Operation at the Ventura Hall of Justice targeting suspected DUI drivers whose licenses where suspended/revoked or who were unlicensed drivers.

Police officers staked out offenders who had been told by a judge not to drive and/or who had been told of their license suspension. Offenders were followed by officers from courtrooms to their vehicles to ensure that they were not driving. While some offenders complied with the law and had alternate means of transportation, one individual in court for DUI proceeded to get behind the wheel and drove away from the court house.

Since he chose to drive away, he was stopped by waiting officers and cited back to court.

Contacts made resulted in:

• Suspended/Revoked citations: 1
• Never Licensed citations: 0
• Number of vehicles towed: 1
• Other crimes committed: 0

Those arrested could face additional jail time, long driver license suspensions, along with other financial hits including attorney fees, court costs, lost time at work, and the potential loss of job or job prospects. When family, friends and co-workers find out, violators can also face tremendous personal embarrassment and humiliation.

DUI Court operations, along with regularly scheduled high visibility DUI enforcement, serve as a proven deterrent with the goal of keeping impaired drivers from the road and heightening awareness among the public of the dangers of driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol.

This special DUI operation was funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Please help the Thousand Oaks Police Department every day of the week: Report Drunk Drivers – Call 911.
