The Lawrence Police Department plans to conduct a DUI saturation patrol on Friday.

The specialized patrol detail, funded through the Kansas Department of Transportation, will put extra officers in the field specifically looking for motorists who exhibit signs of impaired driving and other traffic violations, the department said. Motorists who show signs of alcohol and/or drug consumption will be evaluated and appropriate enforcement action will be taken, police officials said.

The police department said motorists should designate a sober driver, and do their part to help make the streets of Lawrence safer.
