Memorial Day DUI check point at Lake Pleasant a success
Monday, May 26, 2008, the Peoria Police Department hosted a DUI checkpoint
operation from a grant provided by the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety at
Lake Pleasant. The event was a very successful event.
There were eight agencies, including Peoria, who participated in our task
force. The other agencies were: Phoenix Police Department, Goodyear Police
Department, Tolleson Police Department, Avondale Police Department, Glendale
Police Department, Surprise Police Department, and State Liquor Control.
There were more than 35 officers working this detail. The total numbers from all
participating agencies are:
–6 (2007> 8)
for the outstanding news coverage of the check point! Numerous people said they
knew about it, even one that was arrested. I truly believe the success in low
DUI and minor consuming alcohol arrests was the result of your excellent
coverage leading up to the check point operation today and coverage during the
for such a great partnership in keeping the community informed on public safety
