RPD sees a 13 percent decrease in party calls for service
The Redlands Police Department has seen a 13 percent drop in party-related calls for service two years into enforcing the Social Host ordinance, a law that targets underage drinking at house parties. Redlands joined more than 50 cities and eight counties in California, including many within San Bernardino County and the County itself, who had already adopted the law.
The Social Host ordinance gives enforcement authorities the tools to hold accountable “social hosts,” anyone who knowingly provides a location on property that they own or control in which minors can gain access to alcohol.
To save lives and educate all Californians, especially young drivers, about the dangers of distracted driving, the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS), California Highway Patrol (CHP), Impact Teen Drivers, and more than 200 law enforcement agencies statewide are working together on increased education and enforcement efforts for National Distracted Driving Awareness Month in April and California Teen Safe Driving Week, the first week of April.
Redlands Police arrested two people for driving under the influence during a DUI/Drivers License checkpoint over the weekend.
A total of 844 vehicles passed through the checkpoint at the intersection of Orange Street and Pearl Avenue between 8 p.m. Friday, March 27, and 1 a.m. Saturday morning.
In addition to the two DUI arrests, one person was arrested on an outstanding warrant; four people were cited for driving with suspended licenses; another four were cited for driving without a valid license; and one person for driving without a license in possession. Three people were cited for driving vehicles without current registrations. One passenger was cited for having an open container of alcohol in the vehicle.
