The Vancouver Police Department has launched an out of state plate program dedicated to detecting noncompliance, persuading compliance, and following up with individuals that are purposefully evading vehicle registration. According to a recent survey, the rate of noncompliance results in potential lost revenue of $300,000 annually that is allocated to Transportation Improvement Program projects.

VPD Sgt. Steve Dobbs shared this story of meeting his new friend Andrew yesterday: 'While leaving Starbucks on Mill Plain, a lady pulling out of the driveway backed up and parked next to me. A 6 year old boy in the back seat, Andrew, had a smile from ear to ear. The mother explained that Andrew loved the police and she was trying to explain to him how helpful and nice we are. She said he wants to grow up to be an Officer and really wanted to meet me. So I talked to him for a while, deputized him with a Junior Officer badge,gave him an Operation Chill coupon and a tour of the patrol car, which included letting him turn on the lights. Oh, and he wants to be a K-9 Officer when he grows up!!'

Meet Jack Fletcher, a young Battle Ground man who survived being hit head-on by a drunk driver. From August 18-September 4, law enforcement officers throughout SW Washington will be conducting additional DUI enforcement as part of the statewide Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign. Drive safe, drive sober!

This evening officers from the Vancouver, Battle Ground and Washougal Police Departments, and the Washington State Patrol will have extra officers out on the road conducting DUI enforcement. If you or someone you know will be consuming intoxicants, make sure to arrange in advance for a sober designated driver, take a taxi or ride share service or mass transit but DON'T get behind the wheel. Drive safe, drive sober.
