The Oxnard Police Department will be hitting the streets again this weekend searching for impaired drivers. The summer mobilization started on August 20th and so far, the Oxnard Police Department has arrested 24 drivers for DUI. We have also arrested five individuals for outstanding DUI arrest warrants.

The weekend enforcement activities start Friday night, August 27th, as additional officers will be deployed to conduct strict DUI enforcement throughout Ventura County and the city of Oxnard between 8:00 P.M. and 3:00 A.M. On Saturday, the Oxnard Police Department will be conducting a multi-location sobriety and driver’s license checkpoint. The checkpoint is scheduled to start at 6:00 P.M. and end at 2:00 A.M.

Also on Saturday, Oxnard Police officers will be joining forces with officers from the California Highway Patrol, Ventura County Sheriff’s Department, Ventura Police Department, Simi Valley Police Department, Santa Paula Police Department, and California State University Channel Islands during a DUI task force operation that will target the 101 Freeway. Over 25 officers from these agencies will be patrolling the freeway from the city of Ventura to the LA County line searching for impaired drivers. The operation will start at 7:00 P.M. and end at 3:00 A.M.

Last year during this same operation, officers arrested 10 drivers for DUI. One of these drivers was also charged with possession of narcotics.

All of these DUI operations are funded by grants from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

All of the law enforcement agencies in Ventura County are committed to improving traffic safety and will continue to conduct these checkpoints and DUI enforcement operations in an effort to reduce the number of alcohol related crashes and to make our roadways and community safer.

We also remind people that if they see an impaired driver to dial 911. Please buckle up, drive sober, and drive safely!

For any questions related to DUI and traffic enforcement, please contact Senior Officer Brian Woolley at (805) 385-7749 or via e-mail at
