EUGENE, Ore. -- Recent saturation patrols by the Lane County Sheriff’s Office and Roseburg Police Department yielded multiple arrests, law enforcement officials said.

Deputies conducted overtime saturation patrols over the Christmas and New Year holidays with the aim of reducing impaired driving and related crashes.

During the two-week period, deputies on grant-funded overtime made five DUII arrests. An additional 10 DUII-related arrests were made by deputies outside of that overtime.

Deputies on overtime also contacted community members, gave 72 warnings, made seven arrests and issued multiple citations.

During the same time period last year, 15 people were arrested in connection with DUII. This year, deputies worked 36 hours of grant-funded overtime, six more than the year before.

The county’s grant was provided through the Oregon State Sheriff’s Association and the Oregon Department of Transportation.

In Roseburg, police participated in DUII enforcement patrols throughout the month of December with a grant from the Oregon Department of Transportation and Oregon Impact.

Eight people were arrested during December and the New Year holiday for suspicion of DUII.

Police said grants allow officers to focus on issues they wouldn’t be able to during normal patrols.
