The Pinal County Sheriff’s Office received more than $209,000 in funding from the Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety to help make our roadways safer.

The money is being used to help fund overtime during DUI Task Force Enforcement efforts throughout the year and the holiday season. The money will also be used to purchase a 20 Life-Loc Portable Breathalyzers, one Life-Loc Easy Calibration Test Station, and a police motorcycle.

The Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety also wants to help Pinal County combat the speeding and aggressive driving that we see every day on our roadways. Part of the money will be used to cover overtime during those enforcement efforts and pay for five Pro Laser Traffic Enforcement LIDAR Units.

“Protecting this community is a team effort and we could not do our jobs effectively without the help from Director Alberto Gutier and everyone at the Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety,” said Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb. “We appreciate everything GOHS does to help promote safer roads in Pinal County.”

In addition, AZGOHS is helping us purchase 250 child safety vehicle seats used for the Pinal County Child Safety Coalition. PCSO will hosting events, allowing families to get a free car seat for their child. This total funding covers our efforts for 2018.
