Extra DUII patrols

continue in May

The Beaverton Police Department staged targeted patrols for impaired drivers during the month of April and made 22 DUII arrests. The patrols will continue through May.

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

The High Visibility Enforcement detail was paid for by grant funds. So far this year Beaverton Police officers have taken 107 impaired drivers off Beaverton streets.

Stores caught selling

alcohol to minors

Washington County Sheriff's Deputies conducted an undercover compliance mission on April 28, in which underage adults attempted to buy alcohol from stores. 

An underage assistant would provide their actual age and valid Oregon State issued I.D. card if requested by the clerk. Thirty-nine businesses around the Aloha and Cornelius areas were checked and two sold alcohol.  

The stores that sold alcohol were the 7-Eleven at 17771 S.W. Tualatin Valley Highway in Aloha and the Space Age Market at 845 N. Adair Street in Cornelius.

The two clerks who sold alcohol to the underage person were cited for furnishing alcohol to a minor; a Class "A" misdemeanor that carries up to a $5,000 fine for the first conviction.
