News Release
West Linn PD To Continue Extra DUII Patrols Through The New Year - 01/09/18

The West Linn Police Department will continue to work enhanced DUII patrols in the month of January, 2018. These enhanced DUII patrols are funded through a grant administered by Oregon Impact. Last month, the West Linn Police Department arrested 11 drivers for DUII.

The statistics regarding DUII deaths are chilling. Every day, 28 people in the United States die in motor vehicle crashes that involve an alcohol-impaired driver. This is one death every 51 minutes. The annual cost of alcohol-related crashes totals more than $44 billion (from NHSTA, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration). The primary intent of these heightened DUII patrols is to prevent death, injuries and property damage caused by DUII drivers by removing them from the road. West Linn Police 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 safely operate a vehicle.

The City of West Linn is regularly named one of the safest cities of its size (25,000) in the nation. The West Linn Police Department is proud of this ranking, and we believe our enhanced DUII patrols have contributed to keeping the citizens in and around the city safe.
