Through shared partnerships the plan continues to evolve as the unique and diverse issues facing Durango continue to change.

Target Completion Date: Ongoing Active Fiscal Year/Funding: Seek continued state funding for DUI Enforcement / Operational Budget Strategy Leader: Commander Brammer March - June 2018 Update: TACTICS: Impaired: High Visibility Enforcement§ The Durango Police Department was awarded $8,000 for the 2017/2018 high visibility grant year. We worked a total of 33 hours from April through June for the HVE grant. As a result, we were able to arrest 19 individuals throughout the HVE enforcement time frames. § The Durango Police Department was awarded $11,500 for the 2018/2019 high visibility grant year. That is a $3,500 increase from the prior grant year. We were awarded this funding in mid-June 2018. Law Enforcement Assistance Fund§ The Durango Police Department was awarded $4,000 for the law enforcement assistance fund program for the 2017/2018 grant year. The grant was discontinued as of November 2017, as funds dried up and needed to be relocated elsewhere. Only approximately 1/3 of the overall funds were used, prior to the grant being discontinued. CDOT DUI Checkpoint Grant§ The Durango Police Department applied for the 2018/2019 DUI Grant. This grant was submitted in mid-April of 2018. Unfortunately, the City of Durango Finance Department had concerns with tracking items that were to be purchased. The concerns from the Finance Department delayed the CDOT Checkpoint Grant, ultimately causing us to miss the grant submission deadline.

GOAL: Transportation Safety OBJECTIVE 2: Enhance impaired and distracted driving initiatives July- September 2018 Update: TACTICS: § Throughout the past three months, the Durango Police Department has continued its dedication to the Colorado Department of Transportation DUI Grants. The High Visibility Grant is primarily for DUI enforcement and education. -The Durango Police Department will continue working these enforcement periods for the High Visibility Grant. We have approximately $7,500 left in funding. The remaining funds will continue to be paid out for overtime assignments through June of 2019. § The Durango Police Department is looking into other grant opportunities for traffic safety as well. In January of 2019 we will be applying for the DUI Checkpoint Grant. This is a large grant that is offered for agencies to complete DUI Checkpoints. This will again be targeted for DUI drivers and limiting the amount of accidents and intoxicated drivers on the roadways. § The Durango Police Department will also be applying to other grant opportunities, to include the Click-itor-Ticket campaign, Motorcycle Awareness, Speed Enforcement Mini Grant and Traffic Safety Initiatives Mini Grant. § The Click-it-or-Ticket grant will be four separate enforcement periods. The grant application is due by March of 2019. Shawna Maloy and Sgt. Conroy will draft the application in January of 2019 to ensure that we are awarded funding for this campaign. The four enforcement periods extend from mid-March 2019 through late September of 2019. These campaigns encourage people to wear their seat belts while operating a motor vehicle. § The Motorcycle Awareness campaign is a small enforcement project. It begins in early April and extends through May. This safety program attempts to contact motorcycle riders of safety measures that they should take while riding their bikes. This program also attempts to reach out to people operating cars and educate them on the importance of safe driving habits as they incorporate motorcycles. § The Speed Enforcement Mini Grant application is due on April 30th, 2019. We will begin drafting this in January of 2019 and hope to have it completed by early February of 2019. This grant aims to contact people who continue to drive too fast for our roadways. The primary enforcement periods are during daylight hours, but one enforcement period has to be worked between 2100-0300 hours (nighttime). § The Traffic Safety Initiatives Mini Grant incorporates educational opportunities and enforcement actions. This program has multiple areas that an agency can focus on for enforcement or educational purposes. The Durango Police Department will focus on two main areas. For enforcement purposes, we will complete patrols that focus on contacting distracted drivers on our roadways. The second part will aim to educate local high school or college students through a DUI educational opportunity. The Durango Police Department has aspirations to create a drunk driving type obstacle course (possibly on foot or in a golf cart) and show people the dangers of reaction times and inability to properly focus on ones surroundings. § The officers at the Durango Police Department have worked a combined total of 10 enforcement shifts worked. A combined total of 84 hours have been dedicated to the HVE program so far this year. Throughout the four enforcement periods, a total of 29 DUI arrests have been made.

GOAL: Transportation Safety OBJECTIVE 2: Enhance impaired and distracted driving initiatives October - December 2018 Update: TACTICS: § Statistical Data for DUI Enforcement throughout October, November and December of 2018. § October: 36 hours of DUI enforcement worked. 2 DUI’s and 1 warrant arrest were made during the 36 hours of DUI patrol. The department arrested a total of 12 DUI’s in the month of October. A combined total of 52 traffic stops were made during the 36 hours of DUI patrols. § November: 8 hours of DUI enforcement worked. No DUI arrests were made during enforcement overtime. During enforcement overtime, 1 other (suspended DL) was arrested (cited and released). During the month of November 14 DUI arrests were made. A total of 8 traffic stops were made during the 8 total hours of DUI patrols. § December: 26 hours of DUI enforcement overtime was worked.

§ Increase enforcement through existing state and federal impaired driving programs such as LEAF and HVE Grants

§ Sgt. Conroy still working with City grant writer on getting more grants via CDOT for distracted driving, speed grants and “Click-it-or-ticket”. Sgt. Conroy will also be speaking with Deputy Jim Coleman about us being the host agency for the Checkpoint Grants in 2019. CDOT allocates approximately $50,000 statewide to DUI Checkpoint funds. The larger departments receive funding from NHTSA, not CDOT. We would put in for around $12,000 of DUI funding. The La Plata County Sheriff’s Department received approximately $19,000 in 2018 for checkpoint grants. Whether or not Deputy Coleman puts in for funding for his own department, we will be seeking funding from this grant as well. § Allocation of resources based on historical data for impaired and distracted driving for enforcement. § Most of our DUI overtime shifts are on Friday and Saturday nights between the hours of 2000-0400 hours. The reasoning behind this is that our patrol officers get tied up with disturbances and intoxicated calls. They have a more limited amount of time to patrol the streets for people driving under the influence. Besides being on weekends, much of the state targeted enforcement happens around major holidays or festivals. The state requires that an agency participate in 10 of the 14 enforcement periods throughout a year. Participation does not mean that DUI overtime shifts must be worked. It simply means that officers are out looking for DUI arrests during a high impact holiday. The Durango Police Department has not missed an enforcement period during our almost 2 years of participation with CDOT. Many of our DUI’s are stopped and arrested near or surrounding the Central Business District. This is a high impact area, as many of the liquor establishments are in this area.
