The Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office will target drunken drivers during an overnight saturation patrol, which starts at 11 p.m. Saturday.

Eight deputies will be involved in the four-hour, countywide effort, sheriff’s Sgt. Troy Wells said. The patrol — designed to take those who drive while intoxicated off Sedgwick County roads — ends at 3 a.m. Sunday, Wells said.

Since Jan. 1, sheriff’s deputies have arrested 703 people caught driving under the influence.

The saturation patrol is funded through a grant by the Kansas Department of Transportation, Wells said.
