Redmond PD Announce DUII Enforcement

From Redmond Police Department,

Results for April and Planned May Activities

The Redmond Police Department conducted one enhanced DUII enforcement patrol in April. During this effort, Redmond police put one additional officer on the road, funded by DUII grant funds. 

This one Officer worked a total of five (5) hours resulting in the arrest of one DUII driver. During the month of April, patrol officers working their normal shifts arrested fourteen (14) additional DUII drivers. 

Redmond police will continue enhanced DUII patrols throughout the remaining month of May. Three enforcement efforts will be conducted, with special emphasis during Memorial Day weekend. 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).
