DUI Arrest Warrant Operation


Thousand Oaks, CA – Some think if they just don’t show up for a court hearing, the police won’t have the manpower to come find them.  If your violation is a DUI, don’t count on it.   Thousand Oaks Police Department Officers with several outstanding arrest warrants fanned out into neighborhoods in search of high risk DUI offenders on Friday, April 22, 2016.   Officers served a warrant and arrested one offender who violated terms of his probation in an outstanding DUI case.
“The best bet for anyone with a missed DUI court date is to go to court on their own now,” said Sergeant Brad Clifton.  “If you don’t, that warrant isn’t going away. We’re going to come find you and take you to jail.” 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.
Special DUI Warrant Service Operations along with regularly scheduled ‘High Visibility’ DUI enforcement has a deterrent effect on those who disregard driving safety and abuse alcohol and drugs.  Thousand Oaks 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. Funding for the operation is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
