South San Francisco police have added a new weapon to their arsenal in the fight against drunken driving. The department recently purchased a custom-built DUI & Tactical Command Center, which will be used at DUI checkpoints throughout 2010, according to police. The center was outfitted with portable generators, portable lighting, four separate work stations, police radios, maps, emergency equipment and other supplies, police said. It can also be used during tactical incidents, natural disasters or other large events that could benefit from the convenience of a mobile command center. The trailer cost $66,000 and was largely paid for with a grant form the California Office of Traffic Safety, police said. State Farm Insurance, AAA of Northern California, Costco and Home Depot also donated to the project.
