The Prineville Police Department Participating in High Visibility Enforcement for August

The Prineville Police Department will be participating in NHTSA High Visibility
Enforcement national event during the month of August. The goal is to increase
the number of officers on the street aggressively seeking out impaired drivers,
especially during the weekends.
High visibility enforcement is designed to deter people from driving impaired and
to save lives. The Prineville Police Department encourages all drivers to make a
conscious effort to drive responsibly. Impairment can be caused by alcohol and
drugs.
This enhanced enforcement is provided through overtime funding from the
Oregon Department of Transportation, NHTSA and Oregon Impact.
