The Chandler Police Department’s Traffic Unit will participate in a DUI Task Force with the Scottsdale Police Department beginning Thursday, May 4, 2017, through Saturday, May 6, 2017. The Task Force command post will be located at 7601 E. McKellips Road in Scottsdale. A grant through the DUI Abatement Council is providing funding for this event.
Participating officers are specially trained in the detection of roadway impairment for excessive alcohol consumption and use of illicit or excessive prescription drugs. The goal of the Cinco de Mayo Task Force is to remove impaired drivers from the road before the damaging, and often tragic, consequences that result from their poor decision to operate a vehicle while under the influence.
Please remember to always wear your seatbelt and to designate a driver when alcohol consumption is a part of your holiday celebration.
