Throughout the 2013 holiday season, the Portland Police Bureau provided additional DUII patrols throughout the City of Portland. These additional patrols were paid for through grant-funded overtime by our community partner Oregon Impact (http://www.oregonimpact.org).
As a result of these added patrols, the Portland Police Bureau arrested 23 impaired drivers. There were also over 170 citations for a variety of other offenses such as; reckless driving, speeding, driving with a suspended license, talking/texting on a mobile communication device, etc.
The Portland Police Bureau would like to thank those who used good judgment, and acted responsibly throughout the holiday season. We would also like to wish everyone a safe and happy new year.
