Redmond PD announce DUII enforcement

From Redmond Police Department.

Redmond police announce DUII enforcement results for January, planned February enforcement


In January, the Redmond Police Department conducted a DUII High Visibility Enforcement effort. During this time Redmond police placed two additional officers on the road, funded by DUII grant funds. A total of eight hours were worked, resulting several traffic citations being issued, but no DUII arrests during the grant-funded overtime shifts. However, Redmond patrol officers working their normal shifts during January arrested ten (10) DUII drivers.

Redmond Police will continue enhanced DUII patrols throughout the remaining month of February, with a planned patrol on Super Bowl Sunday. 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).
