The California Office of Traffic Safety continued funding for the Santa Barbara County Probation Department’s DUI Supervision Program, which is designed to monitor DUI offenders and mitigate repeat offenses. The department will focus its efforts on the Santa Maria region. The largest city in the county, Santa Maria ranked first out of the 104 similarly sized cities in the state for alcohol-related collisions. According to a press release, high-risk cases will be subject to “increased field supervision and office contacts, DUI program verification activities, searches, routine alcohol testing, increased warrant apprehension efforts, and closer monitoring.”
