On December 14th, 2017 we, in conjunction with the San Bernardino County Fire, participated in a BBQ Cook-off toy funraising event at Supervisor Janice Rutherford's Offiice. Last year we were robbed of the top prize by Fontana PD; however, this year we reigned supreme by winning the trophy. As a result of participating in the event, we received several bags of unwrapped toys for kids of all ages. Our personnel wrapped all the toys and all week we have been handing out the presents to well deserving children. The happiness and great big smiles are a priceless gift we receive in return!

Upland Police Department Traffic Division is dedicated to continual education for the motoring public. We have deployed a half Taxi half Police car for our "Know Your Limit" campaign. The purpose is to educate motorists who decide to drink alcohol and drive. The motoring public must "Choose Your Ride" after consuming alcohol. Officers will be deployed at local businesses and provide voluntary P.A.S. (Preliminary Alcohol Screening) tests to the public that have consumed alcohol. They can use the results from the P.A.S. (breath test) to educate themselves of their blood alcohol level after consuming alcoholic beverages. The Upland Police Department's objective is to ultimately decrease the amount of alcohol related injury collisions. Funding for this program is from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Traffic Safety Administration. Thanks to Marc Bnel from SoCal Customs / One Tint of Upland for his commendable work on our Police/Taxi vehicle.

More DUI information

This Holiday Season, You Better Watch Out! Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over The holidays are a festive time for Americans, and endless parties with friends, families, and co-workers can easily lead to drinking too much alcohol. Drinking and driving accounts for one-third of vehicle-related fatalities in the United States. Keep your holidays merry and bright by remembering to always drive sober, no matter what. Review these facts and sober-driving tips to see you through the New Year. ● This holiday season, Upland PD is partnering with the California Office of Traffic Safety, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and law enforcement nationwide for the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over enforcement campaign to help keep impaired drivers off the road. The campaign runs December 15, 2017 through January 1, 2018. ● This holiday season, expect to see DUI/Drivers License Checkpoints and law enforcement increase patrols looking for drunk or drug impaired drivers. If they catch you driving, you will be pulled over and arrested. Don’t put yourself, your passengers, and others at risk this holiday season by driving impaired. Remember: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over. ● According to NHTSA, 37,461 people were killed in motor vehicle traffic crashes in 2016, and 28 percent (10,497) of those fatalities were in crashes during which a driver had a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) over the legal limit of .08. ● California witnessed 1,059 DUI deaths by drivers with a BAC at .08 or above. Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over ● Impaired driving is illegal, and the consequences can prove deadly to you and those around you. If you drive while impaired, you could be arrested or involved in a car crash, potentially injuring or killing you, your passenger, or another road user. Do you want these devastating consequences resting on your shoulders? Driving drunk and or drug impaired is never worth the risk. ● In recent years, California has seen an increase in drug-impaired driving crashes. Upland PD supports the new effort from the Office of Traffic Safety that aims to educate all drivers that “DUI Doesn’t Just Mean Booze.” If you take prescription drugs, particularly those with a driving or operating machinery warning on the label, you might be impaired enough to get a DUI. Marijuana use can also be impairing, especially in combination with alcohol or other drugs, and can result in a DUI. ● The legal and financial costs of a DUI can be significant. If you are arrested for a DUI, you could face jail time, losing your license, and expenses including higher insurance rates, attorney fees, court costs, car towing and repairs, and lost wages due to time off from work. There’s also the embarrassment and consequences of telling your family, friends and employers of your arrest. Financial Impacts ● On average, a DUI can set you back $10,000 in attorney fees, fines, court costs, lost time at work, higher insurance rates, car towing and repairs, and more. ● The financial impact from impaired driving crashes can be devastating. Based on 2010 numbers (the most recent year for which cost data is available), impaired-driving crashes cost the United States $44 billion annually. Celebrate with a Plan ● Remember that it is never okay to drive drunk or drug impaired. Even if you’ve had only one alcoholic beverage, smoked pot or mixed a drink with drugs or medication, designate a sober driver or plan to use public transportation to get home safely. ● Driver are encouraged to download the Designated Driver VIP, or “DDVIP,” free mobile app for Android or iPhone. The DDVIP app helps find nearby bars and restaurants that feature free incentives for the designated sober driver, from free non-alcoholic drinks to free appetizers and more. ● ‘Report Drunk Drivers, Call 911!’ ● See someone who is about to drink or impaired by drugs and drive? Take the keys away and make arrangements to get your friend home safely. For more information about the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign, visit www.TrafficSafetyMarketing.gov.

DUI/Drivers License Checkpoint Planned this Weekend Upland, CA – Upland Police Department Traffic Unit will be conducting a DUI/Drivers License Checkpoint on 11/17/17, at an undisclosed location within the city limits between the hours of 7:00 p.m. to 3:00 a.m. In recent years, California has seen a disturbing increase in drug-impaired driving crashes. Upland PD supports the new effort from the Office of Traffic Safety that aims to educate all drivers that “DUI Doesn’t Just Mean Booze.” If you take prescription drugs, particularly those with a driving or operating machinery warning on the label, you might be impaired enough to get a DUI. Marijuana can also be impairing, especially in combination with alcohol or other drugs, and can result in a DUI. The deterrent effect of High Visibility Enforcement using both DUI checkpoints and DUI Saturation Patrols has proven to lower the number of persons killed and injured in alcohol or drug impaired crashes. Research shows that crashes involving an impaired driver can be reduced by up to 20 percent when well-publicized proactive DUI operations are conducted routinely. DUI Checkpoints like this one are placed in locations based on collision statistics and frequency of DUI arrests, affording the greatest opportunity for achieving drunk and drugged driving deterrence. Locations are chosen with safety considerations for the officers and the public. In California, alcohol involved collisions led to 1,155 deaths and nearly 24,000 serious injuries in 2014 because someone failed to designate a sober driver. Over the course of the past three years Upland PD officers have investigated 74 DUI collisions which have claimed 6 lives and resulted in another 85 injuries. Officers will be looking for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment, with officers checking drivers for proper licensing, delaying motorists only momentarily. When possible, specially trained officers will be available to evaluate those suspected of drug-impaired driving, which now accounts for a growing number of impaired driving crashes. Studies of California drivers have shown that 30 percent of drivers in fatal crashes had one or more drugs in their systems. A study of active drivers showed more tested positive for drugs that may impair driving (14 percent) than did for alcohol (7.3 percent). Of the drugs, marijuana was most prevalent, at 7.4 percent, slightly more than alcohol. Everyone should be mindful that if you’re taking medication – whether prescription or over-the-counter – drinking even small amounts of alcohol can greatly intensify the impairment affects. Drivers are encouraged to download the Designated Driver VIP, or “DDVIP,” free mobile app for Android or iPhone. The DDVIP app helps find nearby bars and restaurants that feature free incentives for the designated sober driver, from free non-alcoholic drinks to free appetizers and more. The feature-packed app even has social media tie-ins and even a tab for the non-DD to call Uber, Lyft or Curb. Drivers caught driving impaired can expect the impact of a DUI arrest to include jail time, fines, fees, DUI classes, license suspensions and other expenses that can exceed $10,000 not to mention the embarrassment when friends and family find out. Funding for this checkpoint is provided to Upland Police Department by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, reminding everyone to ‘Report Drunk Driver – Call 9-1-1’.

You may have noticed something a bit different about our officers recently. You probably noticed they were not clean shaven and thought to yourself Upland Police is going rogue. Fear not, we are not going rogue; however, we are participating in No Shave November (AKA: November). All police employees are authorized to participate in No-Shave November (Movember). The goal of No-Shave November is to grow awareness by embracing our hair, which many cancer patients lose, and letting it grow wild and free. Donate the money you typically spend on shaving and grooming to educate about cancer prevention, save lives, and aid those fighting the battle. As such, all the employees participating in No Shave November will be donating $50.00 towards City of Hope's research and cancer awareness. We at the Upland Police Department are delighted to participate in No Shave November (AKA: Movember) and show our support to anyone whom may have been affected by cancer.
