Mesa Police Prepare for Memorial Day DUI Task Force Operations
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. 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. "Drive Hammered, Get Nailed."
Are you or someone you know caring for someone with Alzheimer's or a related dementia?
The Mesa Police Department is dedicated to keeping residents of Mesa safe, especially those with Alzheimer's disease and related dementias (AD/D), who may leave their home and become lost. For that reason we offer a free Adult Information Kit for families and caregivers who are caring for someone with AD/D. In addition, we strive to make Mesa a "dementia friendly community" so that persons with Alzheimer's disease and dementia are met with understanding and support. If you own a business or work in Mesa please take a moment to view our brochure "Become a Dementia Friendly Business." Read more information and download the Kit and brochures here.
