Mesa Police Prepare for Memorial Day DUI Task Force
May 21, 2012
The Mesa Police Department will again be participating in the
East Valley Memorial Day DUI Task Force. This DUI Task Force is
in cooperation with the Arizona Governor's Office of Highway
Safety. A combination of DUI Saturation Patrols and a Sobriety
Checkpoint will be utilized throughout the Memorial Day Holiday
weekend. DUI Task force operations will be conducted in both day
and nighttime hours.
The goal of the task force is to prevent deaths, injuries and
property damage caused by drug and alcohol impaired drivers. We
will employ a zero-tolerance approach to any driver found to be
impaired by alcohol or drugs, as well as any driver or occupant
under 21 years old with alcohol in their system. Every impaired
driver removed from the roadway is a potential crime of violence
Funding for the East Valley DUI Task Force is provided through
grant funding by the Arizona Governor's Office of Highway Safety
under the leadership of Director Alberto Gutier.
