Redmond Police Announce DUII Enforcement Results for July & August; Continued September Enforcement (Photo) - 09/14/18

REDMOND, OR – In July and August, the Redmond Police Department conducted a DUII High Visibility Enforcement effort.  During this time Redmond police placed six additional officers on our roadways funded by DUII grant funds.  A total of twenty-four hours were worked on grant time, resulting in the arrest of one (1) DUII driver.  Redmond patrol officers working their normal shifts during July and August arrested twenty-four (24) additional DUII drivers. 


Redmond Police will continue enhanced DUII patrols throughout the remaining month of September.  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 community 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).
