MANHATTAN, Kan. (KSNT) – The Riley County Police Department will conduct a DUI saturation patrol this Friday.

Officers will be looking for signs of impaired driving, along with any other traffic violations.

RCPD says the purpose of the program is to detect and deter impaired driving, by placing additional officers on patrol.
