Redmond PD reports DUII enforcement results


The Redmond Police Department conducted enhanced DUII patrols immediately after the Super Bowl on February 1 and during the rest of February.

Several dozen traffic stops were conducted by the additional patrols, no DUII arrests were made by the officers on the ODOT grant-funded overtime shifts. RPD patrol officers did make a total of 15 DUII arrests during February.

Redmond Police will continue enhanced DUII patrols throughout the month of March. An additional four DUII patrols will take place during March.

The primary intent of these heightened patrols is to prevent deaths, injuries and property damage caused by DUII drivers by removing them from the road.

Redmond Police Department officers are trained to look for signs of impairment beyond just alcohol, as many other substances, legal or illegal, can impair a person’s ability to operate a vehicle.

The officers of Redmond Police Department are committed to making Redmond the safest city 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)
