JACKSON COUNTY, Ore. – The number of DUII arrests in 2023 for Jackson County Sheriff’s Office (JCSO) is the highest in the last 10 years. This year, JCSO deputies have made 349 DUII arrests as of today, December 21, and that number is expected to rise during the holiday season. The previous high was 322 DUII arrests in all of 2021.

Through New Year’s Day, JCSO is increasing patrols to keep our community safer from intoxicated drivers. JCSO and law enforcement agencies throughout Oregon are using federally-funded overtime to increase DUII patrols and educate the public on the dangers of intoxicated driving. The program is funded through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT).
