Mesa Police Prepare for Memorial Day DUI Task Force Operations

May 20, 2013

The Mesa Police Department will 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. Funding for the task force is provided through grant funding by 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 night-time hours.

The goal of the task force is to prevent deaths, injuries and property damage caused by drug or alcohol impair drivers.  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, will be employed. Every impaired driver removed from the roadway is a potential crime of violence prevented.
