The Portland Police Bureau will be conducting extra patrols specifically looking for impaired drivers through December 2, 2013. These extra patrols will be conducted in partnership with the Oregon State Police.

These extra patrols are part of an ongoing effort at "High Visibility Enforcement" (HVE) and are grant-funded by Oregon Impact.

If you are consuming alcohol as part of your Thanksgiving weekend celebration, the Portland Police Bureau encourages motorists to use alternate forms of transportation or designate a sober driver during this holiday season.
