Monmouth Police Department Crackdown on Drunk Drivers to Save Lives - 11/28/18 

The Monmouth Police Department and Oregon Impact want your 2018 holiday season to be happy and memorable. To help accomplish that goal, we have partnered to make the roadways in Monmouth safer this holiday season.

The Monmouth Police Department was awarded a grant from Oregon Impact, which is a prevention and educational non-profit entity in Oregon. The grant provides overtime funds to detect and arrest impaired drivers, thereby reducing the often times devastating but always negative impact the impaired driver can have on others.

The first date the community will notice an increased focus is Thursday, December 13th and will continue through Wednesday January 2nd.

In addition to an increased emphasis on impaired drivers, the Monmouth Police Department and Oregon Impact remind drivers to have a plan in place to get home safely. Designate a driver in your party who will not consume intoxicants. If you prefer otherwise, be sure you pre-arrange a ride home with a friend or family member who will come pick you up.

Think before your drink. The decision you make today can have long-lasting and painful effects on you, your family, friends and co-workers as well as those who may have the unfortunate circumstance of becoming a victim because of your poor choice.

Please don’t drink and drive and buckle up! Be smart – Be safe.
