In November, the Redmond Police Department was informed it had been approved for about $8,000 in funding to reimburse the department for expenses related to High Visibility Enforcement for DUII patrols.
The grant funding will allow the Redmond Police Department to put additional highly trained officers on the city's roadways to deter, look for and arrest DUII drivers.
The ultimate goal of this funding is to prevent unnecessary deaths, injuries and property damage as a result of a drug or alcohol impaired individual making a poor decision to drive a vehicle.
The Redmond Police Department will participate in a nationwide DUII High Visibility Enforcement campaign beginning December 15th and going through January 1st, 2018. During this time. Redmond police will put additional officers on the road, funded by the DUII grant funds.
The Redmond Police Department is 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).
