Prescott Valley Police Memorial Weekend DUI Enforcement

This Memorial Day Weekend, Prescott Valley Police will be out in force conducting DUI and seat belt enforcement.

Prescott Valley Police will continue its support of the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety DUI Traffic Enforcement Program with this latest round of enforcement, which begins May 27 and will continue through the weekend. The police department will be deploying extra officers to enhance traffic safety during this holiday weekend.

The objective of the enforcement program is to reduce the number of car crashes and the resulting injuries and fatalities through increased, highly visible enforcement. Police will focus on occupant restraint, impaired driving, speeding and pedestrian safety. Efforts will be focused along State Route 69, as this is one of the busiest corridors in the quad city area.

Prescott Valley Police would like to remind motorists and passengers it only takes a second or two to fasten a seat belt. A seatbelt could help save your life. In addition the Prescott Valley Police Department would like to remind everyone who drinks to have a designated driver. Be responsible and enjoy the holiday weekend.

Please report suspected DUI, reckless, or unsafe driving to your local law enforcement, Prescott Valley Police Department (928) 772-9261 or call 911.
