News Release
March DUII enforcement results - 04/19/19

The Salem Police Department is continuing its specialized grant-funded patrols targeting people who are committing the dangerous act of Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants. These patrols are funded by Oregon Impact. During March 2019, the police department could only field one of these specialized patrols which resulted in one arrest for Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants and five other citations and warnings. Yet, as an agency, in March, the Salem Police Department arrested 46 people for DUII and issued 11 citations for Minors in Possession of Alcohol. 

The Salem Police Department and our partners, Oregon Impact and the the Oregon Department of Transportation, are committed to keeping our community safe through focused traffic enforcement and education.
