Labor Day weekend is over, but West Valley cops are going to be out in force trying to nab drunk drivers -- this weekend.
You've been warned.

There will be 20 to 30 officers participating in the DUI roundup starting at 7p.m. on Saturday and ending around 4 a.m. -- yes, the weekend after Labor Day weekend. A spokeswoman for the Peoria police said the date was likely chosen because it worked for all the agencies involved.
The command post for the DUI Task Force will be set up at the Peoria Public Safety Administration Building at 8351 W. Cinnabar Ave.
The DUI enforcement event is covered by a grant from the Governor's Office of Highway Safety, and will include members of M.A.D.D. (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) providing food and water for officers.
