Washington County Oregon Sheriff Patrick Garrett

Washington County Sheriff Pat Garrett reports that impaired driving continues to be a significant problem in Washington County and the State of Oregon.

In January, Washington County Sheriff’s Deputies arrested 74 impaired drivers, 7 of whom were under the influence of drugs other than or in combination with alcohol. Nine of these DUII arrests were made by deputies working grant-funded overtime provided by the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office, in partnership with ODOT and NHTSA, will conduct high visibility enforcement patrols this Super Bowl weekend and the entire month of February looking for impaired drivers. We encourage you to enjoy the NFL Super Bowl weekend responsibly.



If you’re going to consume alcoholic beverages or recreational marijuana make sure to have a designated sober driver before the celebration begins. The Washington County Sheriff’s Office reminds you to drive sober or get pulled over.

The February DUII Safety Patrol results will be posted the beginning of March.
