This holiday season, the Oregon State Police, Oregon State Sheriffs’ Association and Oregon Association Chiefs of Police urge everyone to support their enforcement efforts and show zero tolerance for drunk and drugged driving.
Throughout December, law enforcement agencies around the country are stepping up enforcement efforts to help save lives on the roads. Local law enforcement efforts continue through Jan. 1.
The Hood River Sheriff and Police Department both have grant funding this holiday season to pay for increased DUII enforcement.
