DUI arrests during St. Patrick's Day weekend were up over last year, Colorado Springs police announced Wednesday.
Springs police deployed 19 additional DUI officers over a four and a half day period spanning from 6 p.m. on Thursday, March 14 to 3 a.m. on Tuesday. During that time, officers made 41 DUI arrests.
That's up from 28 DUI arrests over the same period last year.
The police department says the additional officers during that time frame were made possible due to Colorado State High Visibility Enforcement grant funds.
