The Marion County Sheriff's Office will be adding extra patrols to our Marion County Roads during the month of July. Patrols will be hitting the streets and highways in an effort to deter motorists who choose to engage in dangerous driving habits such as speeding, distracted driving and DUII.

Patrols will begin July 3rd focusing in North Marion County, with additional DUII patrols for the July 4th holiday. Did you know that, "every day, 28 people in the United States die in an alcohol-related vehicle crash -- that's one person every 51 minutes." (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) That is why our deputies will be dawning their uniforms and working overtime to aide in a safe traveling experience for our residents and visitors.

Traffic patrols like these are made possible through grants from the Oregon Department of Transportation and the Oregon State Sheriff's Association.
