Thanks to a grant, one county in California will be able to resume its
efforts to cut down on drunk driving.
The $360,000 grant was awarded to the Sacramento County Probation Department
specifically to target individuals already convicted of
DUI. This grant will help provide additional monitoring of the worst offenders
in the county. With most probation officers already overworked, this grant
will help provide the funds necessary to guarantee additional monitoring
of the roadways.
Thanks to the grant, the probation department will be able to conduct even
more unannounced home searches, office visits, warrant sweeps, as well
as random testing for alcohol and/or drugs. All of this is already allowed
by the state, but with reduced resources and manpower, it has not been
possible to conduct all of these measures to keep repeat offenders off
the road. Grants like these have helped to reduce the overall deaths in
California caused by drunk driving over the past few years.
If you are facing drunk driving charges, now is the right time to
contact the Law Offices of Virginia L. Landry to enlist the services of one of our Orange County DUI lawyers. We can
