Linn County Sheriff Jim Yon announces his deputies will be working extra patrols for DUII enforcement over the next three weeks until New Year’s Day. The Linn County Sheriff’s Office is dedicated to making our community roads safe for all to travel.

The next few weeks will be filled with parties and family celebrations. Many will enjoy alcohol and marijuana to celebrate the holidays and ring in the New Year.

Sheriff Yon asks for everyone’s help in making sure the holidays are not ruined this year by irresponsible behavior. If you are going to share in holiday cheer, please have a sober driver to take you home. If you notice your family or friends about to drink and drive, stop them before it’s too late. There are several taxi and other ride services available in our area.

Sheriff Yon and his staff wish you all a safe and happy holidays!
