DUI Task Force nets 5 DUI arrests, 46 drivers suspected of speeding over Thanksgiving weekend
Over the course of the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, officers from the Prescott Police Department, Prescott Valley Police Department, Chino Valley Police Department, Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office and Arizona Department of Public Safety teamed up in a combined effort to keep our roadways safe this holiday season.
In all, officers made a total of 188 traffic contacts which resulted in two arrests for Aggravated DUI, three arrests for misdemeanor DUI, 46 citations for speeding, and 88 citations issued for other various violations.
The effort was possible through grant funding from the Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety. The agencies participated in the saturation patrols in conjunction with the Tri-City DUI Task Force. As part of a sustained effort to combat impaired driving, extra enforcement occurred on Friday, Nov. 24, and continued throughout the weekend.
The Tri-City DUI Task Force will continue to conduct high profile details throughout the year and would like to remind motorists that driving impaired is never worth the monetary loss or the physical and emotional devastation that can be caused by simply making that bad choice to drive impaired.
