Increased DUI enforcement in SW Washington (Photo) - 06/08/18

Vancouver, Wash. –On June 8, 2018, the Vancouver, Washougal and Battle Ground Police Departments, and the Washington State Patrol will have additional officers enforcing DUI laws in an effort to keep drunk, drugged and high drivers off the road.  Officers, who are also drug recognition experts, will be among those conducting these increased DUI patrols.   

These additional DUI enforcements are possible thanks to a grant from the Washington Traffic Safety Commission, which covers the overtime costs for the additional officers, as well as high visibility marketing in support of Target Zero, Washington’s strategic roadmap for eliminating traffic fatalities and serious injuries by 2030.  

If you are driving and see a suspected impaired driver, call 911.
