Drive Hammered …..Get Nailed ! (Tempe 8/12/11)

Last Friday night, All City participated in the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety (GOHS) and law enforcement’s DUI Task Force Operations in Tempe. The purpose of the operation is to provide education and reduce the number and severity of crashes in which alcohol and/or drugs are contributing factors. The saturation point was Tempe and the following agencies participated: Chandler PD, DPS, Gilbert PD, MCSO, Salt River PD & Scottsdale PD.
In 2010, the East Valley DUI Task Force (EVDUITF) was comprised of nearly 125 officers from local agencies. They conducted saturation patrols in a different East Valley location each night the EVDUITF was operating. Drivers found to be impaired by alcohol and/or drugs were arrested and transported to the command post for processing. Additionally, the officers enforced the “ZERO TOLERANCE” policy toward underage drinkers.
The 2010 EVDUITF dedicated their efforts to the officers killed by alcohol and/or drug impaired drivers while in the line of duty. To learn more about the statewide effort and statistics, click on the link below.

Towing Done Better – ACT Achieves an A+ Rating from BBB

All City Towing is proud to announce we recently obtained the highest rating from the Better Business Bureau, an A+ ! 

BBB’s mission is to be the leader in advancing marketplace trust.  As an accredited member of the Better Business Bureau, All City subscribes to the same vision – creating an ethical marketplace where buyers and sellers can trust each other.  Both organizations see trust as a function of two primary factors – integrity and performance.  Integrity includes respect, ethics and intent. Performance speaks to a business’s track record of delivering results in accordance with BBB standards and/or addressing customer concerns in a timely, satisfactory manner.

BBB Accreditation is an honor – and not every company is eligible.  Only businesses that meet the high standards are invited to join BBB.   Businesses meeting BBB standards are then presented to local Boards of Directors (or designees) for review and acceptance as a BBB Accredited Business.   All BBB accredited businesses must agree to live up to the BBB Standards for

We couldn’t be more excited about this recent news.   Please call us to experience the difference.

Dollars For A Hero

All City Towing was honored to be invited this past week to participate in a fundraising effort, which raised more than $70,000 to benefit a wounded Valley soldier who celebrated his birthday yesterday.

Private First Class Joshua Bullis, a graduate of Goldwater High School, lost both legs above his knees and his left arm after a roadside bomb exploded in Afghanistan in September 2010.  The efforts to raise the funds were spearheaded by the Phoenix FOP Lodge #2.  Phoenix Officer Dave Hopkins, a friend of Bullis’ mother and father (also Phoenix police officers) handled the event and was ecstatic when the final number reached in excess of the initial $50,000 goal.  The group held a day-long, all-you-can eat buffet and raffle.  The funds will be used by Bullis to assist him with rebuilding his life and retro-fitting his home to make it more handicap accessible. 

Thank you, Josh for your service to our Country.

Taking A Bite Out Of Crime

All City Towing was proud to be a sponsor of the 2011 Arizona Law Enforcement Canine Association (A.L.E.C.A.) Desert Dog Police K-9 Trials. The event was held once again at Scottsdale Stadium, this past weekend. 

Attendees were able to observe many active Police, Military, Government and Security canine teams from around the nation competing in various field exercises. The teams competed in various building exercises; however, because the building, narcotics and explosives searches must take place in a controlled environment, these activities were unable to be showcased for the public.  The competition events included: Handler Protection, Tactical Building Search, Building Search, Agility / Obstacle course, Area Search, Narcotics and Explosives Search.

Congratulations to all participants but most especially to our public/private partners from CPD, DPS, GPD, MCSO, MPD, SPD & TPD.

Drive Hammered…Get Nailed 2010

Drive Hammered …..Get Nailed !

Each year, the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety (GOHS) and law enforcement agencies throughout Arizona participate in DUI Task Force Operations to reduce the number and severity of crashes in which alcohol and/or drugs are contributing factors.  This is accomplished through continued zero tolerance enforcement during the holiday season.  All City has been a long-time sponsor and participant in these efforts. 

Other goals of this GOHS program are: to increase the statewide seat belt/child safety seat usage, to increase public information and education of the benefits of seat belt/child safety seat usage for adults and children and to achieve and maintain compliance with traffic laws such as aggressive driving, speeding and red light running.  This is done by combining the resources from multiple jurisdictions and focus enforcement activities in specific jurisdictional areas.

In 2010, the East Valley DUI Task Force (EVDUITF) was comprised of nearly 125 officers from local agencies.  They conducted saturation patrols in a different East Valley location each night the EVDUITF was operating.  Drivers found to be impaired by alcohol and/or drugs were arrested and transported to the command post for processing.  Additionally, the officers enforced the “ZERO TOLERANCE” policy toward underage drinkers.

The 2010 EVDUITF dedicated their efforts to the officers killed by alcohol and/or drug impaired drivers while in the line of duty.  To learn more about the statewide effort and statistics, click on the link below.
