CHP R.A.I.D. In Woodland Area

The California Highway Patrol (CHP) conducted a R.A.I.D. (Rapid Apprehension of Impaired Drivers) strike force operations on November 8 in the Woodland CHP Area. The R.A.I.D. program uses grant-funded overtime from the Office of Traffic Safety to enable the Department to significantly augment the number of officers on patrol and to deploy them at times and locations in which a high incidence of DUI-related traffic accidents have occurred.

Saturday’s deployment yielded 33 alcohol/drug related arrests.

As always, the CHP appreciates the assistance provided by the media in helping spread the word that driving under the influence will not be tolerated. Additionally, the Woodland Area is to be commended for their continuing partnership and diligence.
