TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Law enforcement across Pima County will hold DUI saturation patrols in anticipation of graduation celebrations expected across town.

The Southern Arizona DUI Task Force held a briefing at the Tucson Police substation on Miracle Mile Friday night. Police departments in Tucson, Oro Valley, Marana and the Pima County Sheriff's Department are participating in the DUI patrol saturation.

The Sheriff's Department is also undertaking a zero tolerance policy for underage drinkers as the fully enforced "social host laws."

Adults who serve alcohol to a person under the age of 21 will be arrested, according to the law. The underage person who was found to be drinking will also be arrested.

"Think about those kids; they've been drinking, they leave, they get into an accident, they kill someone in their vehicle, they kill someone else, they injure themselves or kill themselves. That's a huge liability on the people who hosted the party in the first place," PCSO Sergeant Dawn Barkman said.

A DUI checkpoint is also scheduled Saturday night.
