    Marco Antonio Alvarez-Carreon remembers cheering when he heard a family of Medford bicycle thieves got nabbed in 2013 after stealing an Ashland Police Department bait bike and a second bike from the Southern Oregon University campus. "I remember reading about that and saying, 'Yay! It's working,'" Alvarez-Carreon said of APD's bait bike program, which launched in October 2013 and involves setting out bicycles with electronic tracking devices.

Can I take the reinstatement classes in Oregon if I got the DUI in California?
I got a DUI in CA about 6 years ago and have not driven at all since then. Now I have been living in Oregon for about 4.5 years. I went down to court in CA and got all of that straightened up, but now I need to take the classes to get my license back. Would I be able to take the classes on Oregon rather that California because I live in Oregon now.
You can certainly try to do that in Oregon! You aren't the first person to move after DUI conviction!! Oregon may...

Does DUI diversion prohibit ownership or purchase of firearms?
I was arrested for a DUII earlier this year and plead for diversion, I was deemed eligible for diversion and am about half way done with the mandatory classes; I attempted to purchase a firearm earlier today and was told that the oregon state police delayed my background check. The store asked if I had any previous record and I said I was arrested for a DUI, the clerk said that according to ORS 137.540 I might be under probation under my diversion agreement and in violation of my probation by owning firearms. I checked the paperwork I recieved from the Jackson County courts and did not see anything in regards to ORS 137.540, and the only mention of firearms was in regards to DV cases; am I violating the conditions of diversion by purchasing or owning a firearm?
Doesn't sound like it. First of all, you have not purchased a firearm yet. Your application is probably just delayed...

Two dui in one month
My first arrest for DUI was dropped by DMV for lack of evidence. It was not dropped by the DA. One week later I was arrested for another DUI. This one the DMV suspended my license for. The DA has now charged me with two DUIs, my trial is in January. Could I still be eligible for diversion because these will be tried together?
With two pending DUII's it makes the possibility of entering diversion on one of them more difficult, but not...
