DUI HOLIDAY TASK FORCE BEGINS 12/2/11

All City is a proud supporter of programs promoting safe driving.

Nearly 125 officers from local agencies are conducting saturation patrols in the East Valley during the holiday season.  The Holiday DUI Task Force seeks out impaired drivers on the road, while conducting traffic stops for violations that they observe and enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy for underage drinkers.  Drivers found to be impaired by alcohol and/or drugs will be arrested and transported to the command post for processing during the next few weeks of the holiday season.  This year’s participating agencies will include Mesa, PD, Scottsdale PD, Phoenix PD, Gilbert PD, MCSO, DPS, Salt River PD, Chandler PD & Tempe PD.

In December 2010, officers from 12 agencies participating in the 15-day task force arrested 2,516 drivers for DUI.
