WSP Impaired Driver Unit
The King County Sheriff’s Office and 16 other local law enforcement agencies in King County are participating in a DUI Emphasis this weekend.

Over 50 extra officers combined from the agencies will be on patrol targeting DUI drivers.

Agencies participating include the King County Sheriff’s Office, Washington State Patrol, Washington State Liquor Control Board and police officers from city police departments including Bellevue, Black Diamond,  Burien, Covington, Federal Way, Kent, Maple Valley, Muckleshoot, Port of Seattle, Redmond, SeaTac, Seattle, and Shoreline.

The Washington State Patrol Mobile Impaired Driving Unit (MIDU) will be operating to support law enforcement with DUI processing. MIDU officer staff process impaired drivers in a faster manner to allow patrol officers to return to the road.

Funds for the emphasis have been provided by the King County Council and Washington Traffic Safety Commission Target Zero program.
