To report drunk driving call 911

The DUI Traffic Task Force was first started in 1983 to educate the public and enforce Alabama DUI Laws. Since its beginning, the Unit annually is ranked as the number one DUI enforcement unit in the State of Alabama. The Alabama Department of Forensic Science ranks the seven HPD DUI Officers in the top ten listing of highest performing DUI arresting officers in the State every year.  The members of the unit were awarded the Outstanding Unit Citation in 2009 for their outstanding work in 2008.

The DUI Traffic Task Force Unit is made up of one Sergeant and seven highly motivated Patrol Officers. The unit is tasked with the primary duty to enforce the State of Alabama’s Title 32 (Rules of the Road) with an emphasis on DUI enforcement. The DUI Traffic Task Force is also involved in public awareness programs to educate the public on the dangers of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of narcotics and alcohol. The DUI Traffic Task Force has city-wide responsibility and uses enforcement techniques such as high volume traffic stops, sobriety safety checkpoints, roving and saturation patrols to apprehend and deter impaired and intoxicated drivers. The unit is also involved in the training of Police Cadets in the academy and outside agencies.

The DUI Task Force is a pro-active unit charged with the enforcement of DUI Laws. This unit was recognized by the Alabama Legislature after being named the TOP DUI ENFORCEMENT IN ALABAMA in 2009.
