Two Weeks of Enhanced Enforcement for Start of School Year

August 9, 2011

The beginning of the 2011-12 school year will start tomorrow in Mesa. In an effort to keep our kids safe, the Mesa Police Department will have an enhanced enforcement effort during the first two weeks of school. Officers will saturate school zones and areas surrounding schools for traffic violations. The goal is to get the school year off to a great start for both the kids and drivers as well.

 The cost of this added enforcement is being funded by a grant from the Governor's Office of Highway Safety (GOHS). The Mesa Police Department was fortunate enough to receive this grant during a tight budget year. We would like to thank the GOHS for recognizing the importance of getting our kids back to school safely.

The Mesa Police Department would like to remind Mesa residents and visitors who navigate Mesa's roadways to make an extra effort to be safe while driving. Please be on the lookout for children on their way to and from school, to make it possible for all to arrive at their final destination safely.
