The Mesa Police Department will participate 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 used throughout the Memorial Day weekend, day and night. The command post will be spread out over various locations.
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.
Funding for the East Valley DUI Task Force is provided through grant funding by the Arizona Governor's Office of Highway Safety.
