The Lincoln City Police Department (LCPD) will utilize DUII grant funds to put an extra patrol officer on duty Saturday, Feb. 23, for DUII enforcement during the Newport Seafood & Wine Festival.

The LCPD’s enforcement operation will occur in conjunction with enhanced DUII enforcement efforts by the Newport Police Department, the Oregon State Police and the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office.

The county-wide enforcement effort is designed to seek out drivers who are impaired by alcohol or drugs. The goal is to increase citizens’ and visitors’ safety by getting drunk and impaired drivers off the road.

The department last utilized DUII grant funds for two enhanced enforcement operations during the Christmas/Years “High Visibility Enforcement” time period, which ran from Dec. 13, 2018, through Jan. 1, 2019. Several traffic citations were issued, including three for driving while suspended and three for DUII.

The grant funds are made possible through the Oregon Department of Transportation and Oregon Impact.
