Saturation Saturday initiative Leads to Multiple Arrests and Incidents in Irving

Irving Police Officers were hard at work during this week's Saturation Saturday initiative, aimed at ensuring safety on the roads.

Saturation Saturday was first launched in Missouri in 2016 and is now a MADD campaign. It is a night of increased law enforcement patrols and sobriety checkpoints designed to reduce incidents of drunk or drugged driving.
