- Police Make More Than 1,400 Arrests During DUI Campaign
The Tempe Police have announced that their Safe & Sober campaign which was conducted over the past three weekends led to more than 1,400 arrests.
The campaign kicked off in mid-August and an involved numerous police departments around Arizona including the Maricopa Sheriffs Department and Governors Office of Highway Safety. In an effort to crack down on impaired driving, loud parties, and underage drinking particularly focused on a 2 square-mile area around Arizona State University.
Some further statistics about the campaign include:
- 309 persons were arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- 125 minors were cited for possession of alcohol
- 381 minors were cited for consumption of alcohol
- 5,815 persons were contacted during party call complaints and traffic stops
According to Tempe Police Chief Tom Ryff, the police department receives an average of 500 complaints each month about loud parties and historically October is a peak month for the department.
Moving forward authorities hope the campaign has set the tone for the rest of the year and let students know that such behavior will not be tolerated.
In Arizona there were more than 5,400 alcohol-related motor vehicle accidents reported in 2011 including those involving pedestrians, bicyclists and even colliding with an animal.
