Redmond PD cracks down an DUIIs

Redmond Police Department Announce DUII Enforcement
Results for May and Planned June Enforcement

Spokesman files

The Redmond Police Department conducted three enhanced DUII enforcement patrols in May.  During this effort, Redmond police put three additional officers on the road, funded by DUII grant funds.  These three Officers worked a total of twelve (12) hours resulting in the arrest of one DUII driver.  All three enforcement efforts occurred during Memorial Day weekend.

During the month of May, patrol officers working their regular shifts arrested an additional twenty (20) DUII drivers. 

Redmond police will continue enhanced DUII patrols throughout the remaining month of June.  At least four enforcement efforts will be conducted various times throughout the month.  The primary intent of these extra 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).
