The Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety recently awarded the Safford Police Department $20,000 for overtime funding for DUI and selective traffic enforcement.

The department said the funding will be used to carry out comprehensive enforcement targeting DUI, speeding, aggressive driving, seatbelt, distracted driver and child safety violations. The department also will be working with schools and community groups to increase awareness of the risks and consequences of unlawful driving.

The department also was awarded $8,037 to buy two Portable Breathalyzer Testers, a multi-directional in-car radar and a pole-mounted traffic data collector.
