Prineville PD steps up DUII enforcement before Labor Day


The Prineville Police Department will be participating in a DUII High-Visibility Enforcement national event during this Labor Day holiday and prior, Aug. 17-Sept. 3.

The goal is to increase the number of officers on the street aggressively seeking out impaired drivers, Officer Shane Wilson said Wednesday.

The Prineville Police Department has arrested 52 DUIIs so far in 2018, he said in a news release.

High-visibility enforcement is designed to deter people from driving impaired and to save lives. The Prineville Police Department encourages all drivers to make a conscious effort to drive responsibly. Impairment can be caused by alcohol and drugs.

“Be safe during this holiday season,” Wilson said.

This enhanced enforcement is provided through overtime funding from the Oregon Department of Transportation, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Oregon Impact.
