Senior volunteer patrol officers do San Diego county DUI checkpoint assistancerick
San Diego County DUI Defense attorneys are told that the streets of San Marcos just got a bit safer with the official induction of three new senior volunteer patrol officers. Barry James, Allen Hearing and Donald Roberts — graduates of an intensive two-week Academy — were recognized at the July 8 City Council meeting by the mayor, council members and San Marcos Sheriff’s Station Capt. Don Crist.
San Diego DUI lawyers believe the Senior Patrol began in 1994 as a way to provide extra manpower for the San Marcos Sheriff’s Station. Volunteer officers give out parking citations and report abandoned cars and graffiti. They cordon off crime scenes, control traffic for events and assist at San Diego county DUI checkpoints.
