Tigard police make nine DUII arrests during High Visibility Enforcement Campaign
A Dec. 14 through Jan. 2 High Visibility Enforcement Campaign by the Tigard Police Department netted nine drivers all arrested for driving under the influence of intoxicants.
Also, during the two-week long safety campaign, Tigard Police initiated 37 additional motorist contacts resulting in the issuance of a citation or warning for other violations including speeding and driving while suspended.
Tigard Police plan to continue participation in the grant-funded program which focuses on extra police officers patrolling with the primary focus of arresting impaired drivers.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration-sponsored campaign is credited with improving the safety of our roads, especially during the holiday season and other times when alcohol typically is consumed such as when major televised sporting events air. The next planned High Visibility Enforcement Campaign will be conducted in February, throughout Super Bowl weekend.
