Avoid the 7 Funding

The Auburn Police Department received funding for additional DUI enforcement from the Office of Traffic Safety as part of the Avoid the 7 DUI task force in Placer County. Auburn Police officer Chris Forman manages the grant that brings enforcement from 7 agencies throughout Placer County to increase DUI enforcement on weekends and holidays throughout the year to reduce injuries and deaths due to drunk driving. Auburn Police Lt Victor Pecoraro was at the Auburn city Council Meeting Monday night (Feb 24) where the council accepted the funds as part of the consent agenda.
