6/13/2013 1:59:00 PM 4th of July DUI Task Force operations scheduled
CAMP VERDE -- The Camp Verde Marshal's Office, along with the Arizona Department of Public Safety and Cottonwood Police, will be out in force on Thursday, July 4, through Saturday, July 6, to impact impaired driving during the Independence Day weekend celebrations.
This DUI Task Force is funded by the Arizona Governor's Office of Highway Safety and will be conducted both day and night. A combination of DUI Saturation Patrols and a Sobriety Checkpoint will be conducted throughout the holiday weekend.
The task force goal is to prevent death, injury and property damage caused by drug and alcohol-impaired drivers. They will employ a zero-tolerance approach to any driver found to be using alcohol or drugs, as well as any driver or occupant under 21-years old with alcohol in their system. Every impaired driver removed from the roadway is a potential crime of violence prevented.
