Bellingham Receives a Grant that will Set Quotas for Police Officers

Bellingham was given a grant by the state to support “Target Zero”, a program that is aimed at reducing fatalities, serious injury crashes, and all late hour crashes in Whatcom county. In the context of DUI it means 24 less vehicular homicides and 120 less vehicular assaults. How this program accomplishes these goals is by placing a quota on police officers; arrest 1 DUI suspect for every 4 hours per each officer while they are on active duty. Bellingham DUI attorney Jonathan Rands debates on this weeks podcast, do these quotas push law enforcement to the edge of what is legal?

“Jonathan, thank you for bringing the best possible outcome today in my case. It was a humbling and very sobering experience and I am mindful everyday of my personal responsibility and actions and those around me. My career has taken off and I’m glad to have this chapter behind me and will move onward past probation!”
