GOVERNOR’S OFFICE OF HIGHWAY SAFETY GRANT AWARDED TO KPD FOR DUI & IMPAIRED DRIVING ENFORCEMENT


The Kingman Police Department has been awarded a grant for $20,000 by the Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety to be used for overtime and employee-related costs to enhance DUI & Impaired Driving Enforcement throughout the City of Kingman from October 1, 2017, through September 30, 2018. The goal of the Impaired Driving Program is to reduce the incidences of alcohol and drug-related driving and crashes resulting in fatalities and injuries through enforcement, education and public awareness throughout the State of Arizona. The Kingman Police Department is part of the Western AZ DUI Taskforce, which includes the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office and the AZ Department of Public Safety and other area agencies along the Colorado River. The Western AZ DUI Taskforce will conduct DUI saturation patrols throughout the year during the holidays and special events.

This week kicks off the holiday DUI enforcement season, beginning with Wild Turkey Wednesday. Members of the Western AZ DUI Taskforce will be out looking for impaired drivers. If you are caught DUI you will be arrested, you will go to jail and your vehicle will be impounded for 30 days. Please, please, please…choose a designated driver if you choose to drink this holiday season.
