Marshal's Office plans Memorial Day DUI task force operations

The Camp Verde Marshal's Office, working in partnership with the Arizona Department of Public Safety and Cottonwood Police Department, will be out in force on this Memorial Day weekend, May 23 and 24.

This DUI Task Force is funded by the Arizona Governor's Office of Highway Safety. A combination of DUI Saturation Patrols and a Sobriety Checkpoint will be utilized throughout the holiday weekend. DUI Task force operations will be conducted in both day and nighttime hours.

The goal of the task force is to prevent deaths, injuries and property damage caused by drug and alcohol impaired drivers. We will employ a zero-tolerance approach to any driver found to be impaired by alcohol or drugs, as well as any driver or occupant under 21 years old with alcohol in their system. Every impaired driver removed from the roadway is a potential crime of violence prevented.
