Fresno Police Star in Pilot TV Show
Showcasing DUI Enforcement
Associated Press, Dec. 20 – Fresno's finest are starring in a new pilot television show that showcases the police department's tough tactics against those who dare to get behind the wheel after drinking.
The Court TV reality show "Driving: Under the Influence" premiered Dec. 7. The show follows officers as they stage drunken-driving checkpoints and stake out bars watching for drinkers stumbling to their cars.
Fresno police are hoping the half-hour show results in a series, but officials with the cable network said they couldn't comment on when they would make that decision.
The Fresno Police Department's muscular tactics have won it awards from both Mothers Against Drunk Driving and the International Association of Chiefs of Police.
