Media Release

Oregon State Police Enhanced Patrols - Pendleton


The Oregon State Police will be enhancing our patrol efforts in the Pendleton area starting on Thursday, September 14, through Sunday, September 17.  Troopers will be on foot, bike, and in vehicles.  The Pendleton Round-Up will draw a significant number of motorists to the area and the increased traffic volume comes with an increased risk of traffic collisions.  The Oregon State Police will be seeking the public's assistance in ensuring safe highways for those who are traveling to and from this event, as well as those traveling through the area on other adventures.  


Oregon State Police presence will be focused on reducing violations of the Fatal Five categories- Speed, Occupant Safety, Lane Usage, Impaired Driving, and Distracted Driving (SOLID).  These violations are statistically proven to contribute to serious injury and fatal crashes.  We encourage motorists to plan ahead, in order to avoid the need to rely on excessive speed, use their mobile devices, or operate their vehicles while impaired, in order to get to and from their destinations.


Any media inquiries related to the focused patrol efforts this weekend can be submitted to OSPPIO@osp.oregon.gov
