Be careful Halloween weekend partiers, the King County Sheriff’s Office – along with 16 other local law enforcement agencies, including Burien – will be participating in a DUI emphasis this weekend in King County.

Over 50 extra officers will be patrolling cities and unincorporated areas in King County looking for drunk drivers.

Agencies participating include:

  • King County Sheriff’s Office
  • Washington State Patrol
  • Washington State Liquor Control Board
  • Bellevue
  • Black Diamond
  • Burien
  • Covington
  • Federal Way
  • Kent
  • Maple Valley

The Washington State Patrol Mobile Impaired Driving Unit (MIDU) will be operating to support law enforcement with DUI processing. MIDU officer staff process impaired drivers in a faster manner to allow patrol officers to return to the road.

King County law enforcement reminds everyone to choose a safe ride to help keep our roads safe this Halloween weekend.

Funds for the emphasis have been provided by the King County Council and Washington Traffic Safety Commission Target Zero program.

    Please don’t drink and drive. Please, please, please. Call a Lyft/Uber/taxi… they’re way cheaper than a DUI and certainly less burden than the lifelong weight of living with knowing you killed or hurt someone.
