MORE GOHS GRANT-FUNDED EQUIPMENT HELPS STREAMLINE PCSO TRAFFIC STOPS

With the continued help of the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety (GOHS,) the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office has been able to put even more new equipment into its patrol vehicles.

The new system, called Traffic and Criminal Software (TraCS), allows deputies to conduct traffic stops more quickly and safely by instantly scanning driver licenses and vehicle registration forms, rather than manually entering the information. It also allows law enforcement agencies across Arizona to collect and transmit ADOT crash reports instantly from the field.

This significant upgrade was made possible by a generous $187,178 grant from GOHS.

To date, 100 patrol vehicles have been outfitted with the new scanners and onboard printers. Six additional PCSO Traffic Unit motorbikes were also set up with the new equipment as well as new specialized computers.

“We strive to provide the safest and most efficient service possible for all our residents,” said Sheriff Mark Lamb. “This new system helps us achieve that. We are grateful for the GOHS and their continued support.”
