An Oceanside DUI or any civilian DUI can have significant consequences for a Marine on Base or at his Command. A driving under the influence conviction can be a career ender for staff NCOs and Officers. Even junior enlisted personnel may not be re-enlisted. If the command is aware of the offense, you can loose your base driving privilege for one year, have promotions, schools or orders cancelled. Additionally, junior enlisted usually face NJP (non judicial punishment) which can include loss of a stripe, forfeiture of some pay and allowances and restriction to base.
Most Oceanside DUI arrests occur downtown Oceanside, the I-5 freeway, Highway 76, Highway 78 and El Camino Real. California Highway Patrol makes most of the I-5, Hwy 76 and Hwy 78 arrests and Oceanside Police Department make most of the arrests downtown and on El Camino Real.
