Redmond PD reports DUII enforcement results, plans


The Redmond Police Department conducted enhanced DUII patrols throughout the month of June. A total of eight grant-funded overtime hours were worked by two officers during this time.

Two DUII arrests were made by the officers on the grant-funded overtime shifts. RPD Patrol Officers (non-grant time) arrested 12 DUII offenders during June.

Redmond police will continue enhanced DUII patrols throughout the month of July, with special emphasis during the Deschutes County Fair.

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 the Redmond Police Department are committed to making Redmond the safest community in Oregon. Preventing, locating and arresting DUII drivers is one of many ways we 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).
