OSP Tualatin Trooper - "OSP DUII Enforcement Officer of the Year"
03/19/2008
Sergeant Timothy Plummer
Patrol Services Division - GHQ
Office: (503) 934-0267

An Oregon State Police trooper assigned to the Tualatin work site was recognized recently for his DUII enforcement efforts at the 2008 annual DUII Multi-Disciplinary Impaired Driving Training Conference held March 14th and 15th in Bend. The Oregon DUII Multi-Disciplinary Training Task Force presented their annual awards of excellence to various organizations, groups, and individuals who made a significant contribution to deterring impaired driving in Oregon during 2007.
 
One of the awards is presented to an officer or supervisor active in DUII enforcement or the supervision of an active/innovative DUII enforcement team. The recipient is usually someone who is looked upon by his/her peers as setting an example for other officers to follow in the efforts against DUII. The "DUII Enforcement Officer-of-the-Year" award is presented to a sworn police officer from a city police department, county sheriff's office, and the Oregon State Police.
 
The Oregon State Police award for "DUII Enforcement Officer-of-the-Year" was presented to Senior Trooper James Duncan, a 10-year veteran with the Oregon State Police. Since joining the Department in 1998, Senior Trooper Duncan has been in the Patrol Services Division, is a member of the department's SWAT team, and is a field training officer for new recruit troopers. In 2007, Senior Trooper Duncan arrested 59 drivers for DUII and completed 6 drug evaluations on suspected drug-impaired drivers.
 
Senior Trooper Duncan received high praise for his thorough investigations and complete, detailed reports from his supervisor, Sergeant Walt Anderson, and District Attorney's Offices in Washington, Marion and Clackamas counties. Because of the quality of his reports, Senior Trooper Duncan was selected to teach report writing to Oregon State Police recruit troopers.
