SUMMARY:

On February 20, 2016 members of the Petaluma Police Dept. conducted an Office of Traffic Safety Grant Funded DUI Warrant Sweep in the city of Petaluma.

The purpose behind the warrant sweep was to contact individuals who have been arrested for DUI and not showed up for court appearances or not completed requirements of their sentence. Some of the warrant service attempts were for individuals who had been arrested for driving on a suspended license due to a previous DUI and had not paid their fines or completed terms of their court sentence.

30 warrant attempts were attempted during the operation. Four subjects who are on DUI Probation were also checked. 3 of the 4 subjects who are on DUI Probation with terms to not consume alcohol along with numerous other terms were found to be in compliance. A fourth person, Rodney Segraves was contacted at his residence and admitted to consuming alcohol during the day. Segraves was issued a citation to appear in Sonoma County Superior Court for the probation violation.

Five subjects were arrested for outstanding warrants during the operation. Jonathan Niess 54 year old male from Petaluma, Jack Cameron 60 year old male from Petaluma and 46 year old Steven Batkus were all arrested for outstanding warrants which required they be booked into Sonoma County Jail.

Apolinar Hernandez-Lopez a 48 year male from Petaluma and Ernesto Juarez-Ramirez 31 year old male from Petaluma were also arrested for DUI warrants. They were released with citations to appear in court for the warrants.

Funding for this program has been provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS), through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
