<p><strong>6 Suspects with Outstanding DUI Warrants</strong></p>

<p><strong>Caught in Santa Rosa</strong> <strong>Police Department Sweep</strong></p>

<p><strong>Santa Rosa, CA</strong> &ndash; Some think if they just don&rsquo;t show up for a court hearing, the police won&rsquo;t have the manpower to come find them.&nbsp; If your violation is a DUI, don&rsquo;t count on it. Today, Friday October 14th, 2016 Santa Rosa Police Department Officers with dozens of outstanding arrest warrants fanned out into neighborhoods in search of DUI offenders.&nbsp; Officers served warrants and arrested 6 offenders who either failed to show up for a court date or violated terms of their probation in an outstanding DUI case. One of these offenders was also arrested for possession of controlled substances. &nbsp;&nbsp;</p>

<p>Those caught often face additional jail time for failing to appear in court or for violating probation. When family, friends, and co-workers find out, violators can also face personal embarrassment as they are lead away in handcuffs, as well as missing work while sitting in jail.</p>

<p>Special DUI Warrant Service Operations along with regularly scheduled &lsquo;High Visibility&rsquo; DUI enforcement has a deterrent effect on those who disregard driving safety and abuse alcohol and drugs.&nbsp; Santa Rosa PD places a high priority on lowering deaths and injury with the goal of removing impaired drivers and heightening awareness of the dangers of driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol.&nbsp;</p>

<p>Funding for the operation is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Report Drunk Drivers; Call 9-1-1!</p>
