The Scottsdale Police Department is teaming up with other local law enforcement agencies for a DUI Task Force and Saturation Patrol.
The traffic safety effort begins Friday, Nov. 25, and runs until Jan. 1, officials said.
The task force is a collaboration among the Scottsdale Police Department, the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety, the Arizona Department of Public Safety, Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office and the Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa, Salt River and Tempe police departments.
Task force officers will “contact drivers and arrest those who make the disastrous decision to drive impaired, removing them from the roadway before they hurt themselves or others,” Scottsdale police said in a release.
“The best choice to make this holiday season if consuming alcoholic beverages or using marijuana is to pre-arrange to have a sober driver, ride share or taxi.”
