Concord Police Department Officers have been heading out into neighborhoods today in search of high risk DUI offenders with outstanding arrest warrants. Officers will be serving warrants and arresting those who either failed to show up for a court date or violated terms of their probation in an outstanding DUI case.

“The best bet for anyone with a missed DUI court date is to go to court on their own now,” said Lt. James Nakayama. “If you don’t, that warrant isn’t going away. We’re going to come find you and take you to jail.”

Special DUI Warrant Service Operations along with regularly scheduled ‘High Visibility’ DUI enforcement has a deterrent effect on those who disregard driving safety and abuse alcohol and drugs. Concord PD places a high priority on lowering deaths and injury with the goal of removing impaired drivers and heightening awareness of the dangers of driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol.

Funding for the operation is provided by a grant form the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Report Drunk Drivers; Call 9-1-1!

I hope they are only arresting American citizens. Remember… this is a sanctuary state!

And make sure their children go to jail with them so they’re not separated!

Please just deport the illegal ones. I don’t want a single cent of my tax dollars used for any Court costs including their free (to them) attorneys.
Thank you, Donald!

Yep agree glad dems are wasting all their energy on bringing Trump down instead of finding a decent candidate for 2020 the more smut they try to blame Trump for the more they expose themselves for their corrupt behavior and lies.

Seeing as how this story has nothing to do with immigration, this is a pretty weird place to be bringing up your prejudices…..

t…2016-Cost per night of families held together at border detention centers about $300 per night.
2018-Cost per night of ‘tender age’ shelters about $800 per night. Add in costs of parent and other siblings equals who knows how much.

I don’t want a single cent of my tax dollars spent on added expenses for local police at Mar-a-logo. So what?

What are these people thinking, not showing up in court? Do they think it will just go away? Fines will be even steeper and nothing worse than an angry judge! 🙁

Unfortunately for person with a drinking problem, often clear thought processes and a sense of responsibility are elusive at best.

Sometimes referred to as a disease. Breaking it down, Dis – Ease.
Excessive drinking is a way to cope, with a reality they are unprepared for. Self medication (alcohol) is used to put them at ease making problems temporarily go away. In the case of warrants as you said they don’t go away.

Unfortunately there comes a point with alcohol where it no longer works. Sometimes called a bottom, IF they are Lucky.

Why do we need xtra funding by a grant when the DUI’s are very expensive fines! They should use that money to go after these poor souls!

Citizen

You have confused yourself again. They are arresting people who haven’t paid their fines.
