GRANTS PASS, Ore. — High-visibility patrols for intoxicated drivers in Grants Pass throughout the month of December brought in almost an equal number of arrests and citations, according to the Grants Pass Department of Public Safety (GPDPS).

"During the month of December the Grants Pass Department of Public Safety once again joined forces with other Oregon law enforcement agencies to participate in High Visibility Enforcement Operations. Patrols were increased to aggressively look for impaired drivers throughout our community," GPDPS said in a statement.

In that one-month period, officers arrested 37 people for driving under the influence of intoxicants (DUII), plus 37 more citations or arrests for driving on a suspended license. Five juveniles were also cited for possession of alcohol.

"The Grants Pass Department of Public Safety encourages the motoring public to plan ahead and designate a sober driver. Police also encourage citizens who witness suspected impaired drivers to contact police immediately," GPDPS said.
