News Release
West Linn Police Department Receives Additional Grant Funds For DUII Enforcement - 03/13/18

The West Linn Police Department has received additional grant funds through Oregon Impact in order to increase DUII enforcement through September 2018. The West Linn PD will have additional patrol cars searching for intoxicated drivers throughout the spring and summer holiday periods as well as on Cinco de Mayo, Memorial Day, July 4th, the West Linn Fair, and Labor Day.
Drunk driving, impaired driving or buzzed driving all have the potential to claim lives and often will result in jail time. The men and women of the West Linn Police Department ask you to please think about this before you operate a motor vehicle after drinking alcohol or using any other substance that impairs your ability to safely operate a motor vehicle. The West Linn Police Department takes impaired driving seriously and these grant funds allow us to have dedicated officers out looking for those impaired drivers.
Who is most at Risk? Young people. Among drivers with BAC levels of 0.08% or higher involved in fatal crashes in 2015, nearly 3 in 10 were between 21 and 24 years of age. The next two largest groups were ages 25 to 34 (27%) and 35 to 44 (23%).
