Battle Ground police arrested five people on suspicion of intoxicated driving in a 72-hour period beginning July 3 and lasting through July 5.

The agency didn’t do a special emphasis patrol, but said it always has the goal of decreasing the number of crashes, injuries and deaths caused by impaired drivers.

All of the Battle Ground Police Department’s officers are trained in performing standard field sobriety tests, and the agency has one sergeant who is a certified drug recognition expert.
