Roswell Police DUI quota memorandum stuns community

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported on April 28, 2010, the that City of Roswell, Georgia DUI police officers working the night shift have been ordered to meet a 25 a year DUI arrest quota or be transferred off the night shift.

The story was based on a memo from a Roswell Police Department shift supervisor in January 2010 setting a quota or “goal” of 25 DUI arrests a year. Reportedly a Roswell DUI Police officer was transferred from the night shift two weeks after the Roswell DUI quota memo was issued for not keeping up with other DUI officers’ arrests.

DUI arrests in Roswell have increased sharply this year.
