TULSA, Oklahoma -

Police say a Memorial Day saturation patrol involving several Tulsa County law enforcement agencies was very productive. Part of the Click It or Ticket Campaign, Saturday night's effort focused on getting impaired drivers off the road.

"We had 32 driving under the influence arrests," said Officer Craig Murray, Traffic Safety Coordinator for the Tulsa Police Department.

"At least 32 peoples' lives were saved last night, and I look at that as a big reward."

Tulsa, Sand Springs, Jenks and Skiatook Police Departments took part in the patrols as did the Oklahoma Highway Patrol and Tulsa County Sheriff's Office. Overtime for the officers was paid for through an Oklahoma Highway Safety Office grant.

They were out on the streets from about 8 p.m. Saturday through 4 a.m. Sunday.

The full results of the patrol are as follows:

  • 32 DUI arrests
  • 1 actual physical control arrest
  • 1 felony warrant served
  • 21 misdemeanor warrants served
  • 55 seat belt tickets
  • 1 child restraint ticket
  • 94 speeding tickets
  • 247 other citations
  • 24 other arrests (most common were transporting an open container and public drunk)

The Click It Or Ticket program continues through June 2, Murray said.

"It's a 24/7 job that we do as law enforcement," he said. "We just put this mobilization together for Memorial Day weekend to keep people safe."
