Tempe PD - Safe & Sober Results through Aug 31
Posted Date: 9/4/2013 9:30 AM
The Tempe Police Department will be hosting a press conference TODAY at 11:00 AM at our Apache Substation located at 1855 E. Apache Blvd. Tempe.

Police Chief Tom Ryff and AZGOHS Director, Alberto Gutier will both be addressing this campaign and the joint efforts that took place in addressing youth alcohol consumption.

The operation began August 15th.  Attached below you will find the total results of the first three weekends. These results reinforce that this operation has made a significant impact on the safety of the community.

Several valley law enforcement agencies assisted our campaign by allocating both manpower and resources.

The following is a recap of arrests and enforcement actions resulting from the three weeks of the Safe & Sober campaign. 

*Total Number of Contacts or Stops 5815
*Total Citations (Violations) 3788
*Total Arrests 1367
*DUI's 309
*Warrant Arrests 174
*MIP (1st & 2nd Offenses) 125
*MIC (1st & 2nd Offenses) 381

Though a majority of this message recaps our enforcement efforts, it is important to note that enforcement is but one component of our Safe and Sober campaign. Other components have included partnering with social service agencies and media outlets to educate members of our community about the negative impact of youth alcohol consumption, overall crime prevention, our loud party ordinance changes, and traffic safety education in and around our elementary, middle, and high schools.
