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.
