Issaquah Police officers will be recognized for anti-DUI effort

May 25, 2010

By Staff

Issaquah Police officers will be honored June 1 for stepping up patrols to spot intoxicated drivers.

The officers — Andy Rohrbach, Ryan Raulerson, Brian Horn and Tom Griffith — will be recognized alongside other officers, deputies and troopers assigned to the enhanced DUI patrols, known as X-52 patrols.

Rohrbach coordinates the DUI patrol emphasis for the Issaquah Police Department.

The ceremony will be at 10:30 a.m. June 1 at the King County Chinook Building, 401 Fifth Ave., Seattle.

Statewide, law enforcement officers arrest more than 40,000 motorists for driving under the influence each year.

Public Health – Seattle & King County and the King County Traffic Safety Coalition organize X-52 patrols in north King County, and the South King County Target Zero Task Force organizes patrols in the southern part of the county.

King County Target Zero Task Force leaders will honor the Issaquah officers.

Money for the X-52 patrols comes from the state Traffic Safety Commission. Target Zero is a plan to eliminate traffic deaths and traffic-related serious injuries in the state by 2030. Learn more about the plan here.

    I was driving on Gilman and made a left on Hwy 900 when I spotted several cars being pulled over by a bunch of cops. I asked my sister who works at the Issaquah Police Dept and she told me that they are running out budget so the cops, in order to avoid layoffs, have to start flagging and citing people for all kinds of traffic violation. What a way to make a living.

    They should also recognize them for abusing their positions, like hinting for sexual favor. I was at a local bar and this Issaquah cop was hitting on me like I was hooker.

Got something to say?
