LOS ANGELES (KTLA) — Arrests for driving under the influence are down in Los Angeles County this holiday season.

The Sheriff’s Department is reporting around 1,800 arrests after more than 2,200 were made last year.

Statewide arrests increased, however. The California Highway Patrol said 1,170 DUI arrests were recorded between December 21 and 25, compared with 980 in the same period in 2011.

The L.A. County Sheriff’s Department will be conducting extra D.U.I. checkpoints and patrols on Monday night.
