Mesa Police Prepare for Memorial Day DUI Task Force Operations

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 prevented.

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.
