Free Child Safety Seat Clinic - 01/16/18

Every 33 seconds, one child under 13 is involved in a crash. That's a terrifying statistic and one that demands our immediate attention. To help combat this serious issue, we must work together to spread the word about child passenger safety and the life-saving importance of correct car seat selection, installation, and use. Is your child's car seat correctly installed? Don't think you know - know you know.

The Beaverton Police Department, in partnership with Safe Kids Coalition Washington County and
the Kuni Auto Center, will be offering a free child car seat clinic to spread the word. The clinic will be held on Saturday, January 20, 2018, at the Kuni Auto Center located at 3275 SW Cedar Hills Blvd. Beaverton OR, 97005. The clinic will run from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

For more information on how a seat belt properly fits a child, please visit
https://www.nhtsa.gov/equipment/car-seats-and-booster-seats

A certified technician will help parents and caregivers learn to install and use their child safety restraints properly. No appointment is required -- just drop by during the event. Each car seat check will take about 30 minutes. Please note that the last car will be accepted no later than 11:30 a.m.

347 DUII Arrests Made in 2017 - 01/03/18

The Beaverton Police Department is participating in a yearlong National Traffic
Safety Campaign. The focus of this campaign is taking impaired drivers off our
streets and keeping Beaverton a safe city to travel and live.

Officers were out on targeted patrols for impaired drivers during the month of
December and made 38 DUII arrests. During the month of January and through 2018,
officers will continue their efforts to take impaired drivers off the streets of our no
refusal city. This High Visibility Enforcement (HVE) detail was paid for by grant funds.

347 impaired drivers impaired drivers were taken off of Beaverton streets in 2017.
44 of these 347 subjects refused a breath test and a warrant for a blood draw was
granted. These numbers are lower than in 2016 where we arrested 405 impaired drivers
and 60 drivers refused a breath test. We believe this decrease is due to our education
campaigns, enforcement, and the fact that we are a no refusal city.

The men and women of the Beaverton Police Department ask you to please think
about this before you operate a motor vehicle after drinking alcohol or using any
other substance that impairs your ability to operate a motor vehicle safely.
