Redmond Police Department Announce 
June DUII Enforcement Results,  
Planned July Enforcement

Spokesman files
The Redmond Police Department conducted two enhanced DUII enforcement patrols in June. During this effort, Redmond police put two additional officers on the road, funded by DUII grant funds. These two Officers worked a total of 10 hours resulting in the arrest of one DUII driver, one person with a felony warrant, assisted patrol officers (due to staffing) in a trespass incident where an arrest was made and issued a citation to one suspended driver. 

During the month of June, patrol officers working their regular shifts arrested an additional 14 DUII drivers. 

Redmond police will continue enhanced DUII patrols throughout the remaining month of July. At least five enforcement efforts are planned 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).
