DUI Arrest Contest Rules and Prizes

DUI Arrest Contest
Rules and Prizes
DUI Attorney on Florida‘s West Coast just uncovered the “rules” for a recent DUI Arrest Contest. The awards are characterized as DUI enforcement equipment, some of it valued at thousands of dollars. As a Criminal Defense Attorney, I am not aware of a single other crime where rewards are given based on arrests. The stakes are high for the contestants as one prize is, “one fully equipped vehicle” Just in case the Florida DUI cops are embarrassed by our uncovering this scam buried deep in their website and decide to take it offline,  we have placed a Copy of the DUI Arrest Contest Rules here.
The Rule book opens like this:
“The Florida DUI Sustained Enforcement Program supports this goal by rewarding agencies for conducting high visibility DUI enforcement operations. The FDOT Safety Office has established an incentive program with four levels of participation. Each law enforcement agency can select the level of participation that fits its manpower availability. The Law Enforcement Liaison Program will collect monthly reports filed by the participating agencies, determine what participation level each agency has met at the end of the calendar year, and provide access to an online equipment catalog. Agencies can select DUI enforcement equipment based on the participation points that they have earned directly from the online catalog.”
Scoring System:
Conduct/Host DUI checkpoint:                       100 points
Saturation Patrol:                                              20 points
Attend Checkpoint hosted by other agency: 10 points
Platinum 6000 DUI Enforcement Activity Points Earned
Gold         4000 DUI Enforcement Activity Points Earned
Silver 2000 DUI Enforcement Activity Points Earned
Bronze 1000 DUI Enforcement Activity Points Earned”
The “points” actually have a cash value that our investigation uncovered:
Platinum Level Award $15,000
Gold Level Award         $10,000
Silver Level Award          $5,000
Bronze Level Award        $2,500
They even have a lottery type “drawing” for other prizes:
In addition to the regular program rewards, all agencies that qualify at the Bronze or Silver levels will be eligible for a random drawing for a laser speed measuring device. All agencies that qualify at the Platinum or Gold levels will be eligible for a random drawing for one fully equipped vehicle to be used exclusively for DUI enforcement by the winning agency.
