PCSO MAKES ROADS SAFER DURING THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND WITH DUI TASK FORCE
 
Posted: 9/12/2017 12:00 AM
 
The Pinal County Sheriff’s Office kept the roads safer during the Labor Day weekend. During the 2017 DUI Labor Day Task Force, law enforcement took 20 impaired drivers off the road. All drivers were either under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Enforcement efforts focused on the Apache Junction, Highway 60, and San Tan Valley areas. Two of these impaired drivers came at the expense of motor vehicle collisions. Thankfully, the victims of these crashes were not severely injured.

The DUI task force was successful by outstanding representation from the Pinal County Sheriff's Office Traffic Unit and Sheriff’s Posse, The Arizona Department of Public Safety, Superior Police Department; Casa Grande Police Department; Maricopa Police Department; Apache Junction Police Department; Coolidge Police Department; and Ak-Chin Police Department.

These type of DUI enforcement efforts would not be possible without continued support from Director Alberto Gutier and the Arizona Governor's Office of Highway. Without the support of GOHS funding, it would be impossible for the DUI task force to maintain its never ending effort in curbing the impaired driving population in Pinal County.
