Boo: Sheriff plans Halloween DUII patrols

The Multnomah County Sheriff's Office is beefing up DUII patrols from now through the Halloween weekend.

Patrols will be increased again at the end of November.

According to the sheriff's office, deputies will be on the lookout for drivers operating vehicles under the influence of alcohol or other drugs. The office is participating in High Visibility Enforcement patrols supported by a grant from the Oregon Department of Transportation and Oregon State Sheriff's Association.

The sheriff's office advises that if you are hosting a Halloween party or a holiday get together, plan ahead with these tips:

• Arrange rides home for your friends, family, co-workers and yourself before the drinking begins.

• Party hosts and servers must limit drinks to your guests or patrons.

• Don't serve more than one or two over several hours.

• Cut back on the amount of drinks you plan to bring to the party - and provide plenty of food.

The Multnomah County Sheriff's Office asks the public if you see dangerous driving, report impaired drivers by calling 9-1-1.
