Mesa Police Prepare for Memorial Day DUI Task Force

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 holiday weekend. DUI Task Force operations will be conducted in both day and nighttime hours. The command post will be spread out over various locations.

The goal for the task force is to prevent deaths, injuries, and property damage caused by drug and alcohol impaired drivers. The Mesa Police Department will employ a zero-tolerance approach to any driver found to be impaired by alcohol or drugs to include any driver or occupant under 21 years of age with alcohol in their system. Every impaired driver removed from the roadway is a potential crime of violence prevented.
