Tigard General Information

Tigard is a city in Washington County, Oregon south of Beaverton and north of Tualatin. Tigard has a population of approximately 50,000 and is part of the Portland metropolitan area. Major highways– and DUI patrols– include Interstate 5 and Oregon Route 217, Oregon Route 99W, and Oregon Route 210.

Tigard DUI Enforcement

Law enforcement agencies most responsible for Tigard DUI enforcement are the Tigard Police Department, Washington County Sheriff’s Office, and the Oregon State Police. Most Tigard DUI investigations result in either an arrest or citation without arrest.

Tigard DUI Cases

Tigard DUI citations are typically forwarded to the Washington County District Attorney’s Office for a charging decision. If a formal criminal charge is filed, then the case typically proceeds through the Washington County Circuit Court. Most drivers charged with a first-time DUI are eligible for Oregon’s DUI Diversion Program. DUI cases that are not available for diversion may still be eligible for dismissal, or may be able to be resolved through plea negotiations or trial.

Tigard DMV Hearings

If you failed a breath test or refused the breath test, you will likely be looking at an administrative driver’s license suspension. This license suspension is separate from the criminal charge for DUI, and the license suspension can be imposed even before your criminal case is resolved. An administrative hearing called a “DMV Implied Consent hearing” is available to challenge this license suspension, but the request for the hearing must be made within ten-days of the date of your arrest. It is crucial that you have your attorney request this hearing immediately. The hearing will be scheduled and held by the Office of Administrative Hearings. The hearing will typically take place within 30-days after your arrest, and can be in-person or by phone. If you or the arresting officer demand an in-person hearing, the hearing location may not necessarily where you live, but rather will be within 100 air-miles of where the DUI arrest took place.

Tigard DUI Jail Service

Drivers arrested for DUI in Washington County will typically be booked into the Washington County Jail. If any jail service is required later as part of a sentence, you will serve additional jail at this location.
