Lincoln City Police Department will be utilizing DUII Enforcement Grant funds to conduct enhanced DUII enforcement patrol over the Spring Break time period.
The Lincoln City Police Department has put extra patrol officers on duty during times when higher numbers of impaired drivers are likely to be on the roadways. These enhanced enforcement patrols are designed to increase the number of patrol officers on the streets with an emphasis on seeking out impaired drivers.
Impaired driving continues to be a leading cause of motor vehicle crash deaths and injuries throughout the nation. In addition to seeking out impaired drivers, these officers will also be watching for minors who have been consuming alcohol.
The Lincoln City Police Department last used the DUII Enforcement Grant funds to conduct one enhanced enforcement operation during Superbowl Sunday.
The officers of your Lincoln City Police Department are committed to the safety of our citizens and visitors. These grants are a valuable resource that will assist us in improving the traffic safety in our community. Our goal is simple – to save lives and prevent injuries caused by drunk driving crashes.
These grant funds were made possible through the Oregon Department of Transportation and Oregon Impact.
