The Redmond Police Department conducted two enhanced DUII enforcement efforts in March.  During these efforts, Redmond police put two additional officers on the road, funded by DUII grant funds.  Two officers worked a total of eight (8) hours resulting in the arrest of one DUII driver and the stop of another DUII driver, with the investigation and arrest turned over to a patrol officer not on grant time. 

During the month of March, patrol officers working their normal shifts arrested eighteen (18) additional DUII drivers.  Through the first quarter of 2016 (ending 03/31/2016), your police department has arrested no less than 50 DUII drivers.
Redmond police will continue enhanced DUII patrols throughout the remaining month of April.  The primary intent of these heighten patrols is to prevent deaths, injuries and property damage caused by DUII drivers by removing them from the road.  Redmond Police Department officers are trained to look for signs of impairment beyond just alcohol, as many other substances, legal or illegal, can impair a person’s ability to operate a vehicle. 

The officers of your Redmond Police Department are committed to making Redmond the safest city in Oregon.  Preventing, locating and arresting DUII drivers is one of many ways they are working to accomplish this vision.  Funding to support these enhanced DUII patrols is provided by a DUII High Visibility Enforcement Grant, awarded to the Redmond Police Department from the Oregon Department of Transportation.

Please report suspected DUII drivers by calling 541-693-6911 in Deschutes County or anywhere in Oregon by calling 800-24-DRUNK (800-243-7865).
