PRINEVILLE, Ore. (KTVZ) -- The Prineville Police Department will be conducting several traffic safety enforcement actions throughout the months of October and November.

These operations will take place in high-traffic areas or areas where traffic-related complaints are frequent.

Enforcement and education will be for cell phone and electronic device use while driving, crosswalk and pedestrian safety, speeding, safety belt and child safety seat use. However, officers will continue to enforce and educate about all traffic laws. 

We want to remind everyone about school traffic and rapidly changing road conditions as we move into the fall and winter months.   

The Prineville Police Department encourages all drivers to make a conscious effort to drive responsibly and safely.

Remember, October is Pedestrian Safety Month.  Check out this link for more information.

These enforcement and education operations are made possible through overtime funding provided by Oregon Impact, Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
