Local Police Reminding Drivers, It’s Back-2-School This Week

The Prineville Police Department will be conducting a Pedestrian Enforcement Operation in the area of NE 3rd Street in select school zones and school traffic areas.

The goal is to increase awareness that every intersection is a crosswalk and to be aware of increased school pedestrian related traffic as we transition into the 2019-2020 school year.

Law enforcement all across Central Oregon, including The Prineville Police Department encourages all drivers to make a conscious effort to drive responsibly and safely.

This enforcement operation is made possible through overtime funding provided by Oregon Impact.
