Grants for extra patrols over the Christmas and New Years holiday resulted in a flurry of activity for deputies.

KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. — Grants for extra patrols over the holidays led deputies with the Klamath County Sheriff's Office (KCSO) to pull in a few arrests, citations and warnings, according to a statement from the agency.

Over Christmas and New Year's, five deputies worked 21.5 hours, according to KCSO. During those hours, deputies made three arrests — two for driving under the influence of intoxicants (DUII) and one for driving while suspended or revoked. They also issued 11 citations and 33 warnings in-lieu of citation.

The extra patrols were funded by grants from the Oregon State Sheriff's Association and the Oregon Department of Transportation.

For 2018-2019, KCSO received a total of $17,500 — much of which has already been allocated for scheduled patrols, including National Distracted Driving Awareness Month in April, "Blitz Periods" for safety belt patrols, and a selection of holidays and events coming up this year.

By comparison, the Jackson County Sheriff's Office recently reported making 14 DUII arrests during their "19-day holiday saturation patrol period," including four that were directly related to crashes.
