Traffic Unit to Conduct Cinco de Mayo DUI Task Force

The Chandler Police Department’s Traffic Unit will conduct a DUI Task Force from Thursday, May 5, 2016 through Saturday, May 7, 2016.  A grant from the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety (GOHS) provided 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 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.
