The City of Durand Police Department is stepping up enforcement and educational programming related to impaired driving awareness and prevention. Impaired driving includes driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol, including recreational or medicinal marijuana. Visitors to our downtown district can expect to see an increased police presence during evening hours and are encouraged to contact non-emergency dispatch at (989) 743-9111 if they suspect someone of impaired driving. The department will simultaneously be increasing enforcement related to liquor license regulations in the coming weeks.
