Press Release

Marana Police Receive 3 Traffic & DUI Related Grants

Sent on 1/6/2017 1:17:22 PM

The Governor’s Office of Highway Safety (GOHS) and the DUI Abatement council have awarded the Marana Police Department three grants that total $125,000 in overtime funding. DUI/Impaired Driving Enforcement Grant – GOHS has awarded the Marana Police Department with $50,000 in grant funding to conduct DUI enforcement throughout the Town of Marana. The goal of the funding is to reduce alcohol and drug related driving, fatalities and injuries through enforcement, education and public awareness. Selective Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP) Grant – GOHS has awarded the Marana Police Department with $40,000 in grant funding to conduct speed and traffic enforcement throughout the Town of Marana. The goal of this grant is to reduce traffic fatalities and injuries resulting from speeding, aggressive driving, red light running and other forms of risky driving behavior through enforcement, education and public awareness. DUI Warrant Sweeps Grant – The DUI Abatement Council has awarded the Marana Police Department $35,000 in grant funding to conduct warrant sweeps targeting DUI suspects who have failed to appear in Marana Court and have active warrants for their arrest. Suspects listed in these warrants are often repeat offenders who regularly put the public at risk by continuing to drive on public roadways while impaired, uninsured, or with suspended and/or revoked driving privileges. Last year, utilizing a similar grant, Marana PD completed nine successful warrant sweeps that resulted in 75 arrests, 125 warrants served and $124,971 in recovered bond money. The Marana Police Department would like to thank the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety and the DUI Abatement Council for continuing to help make the Town of Marana a safe place for citizens to live, work, and shop. ####
