The detail was performed by the Sierra Vista Police Department, Tombstone Marshal’s Office, Arizona Department of Public Safety, Cochise County Sheriff’s Office, Bisbee Police Department, and Huachuca City Police Department. The detail resulted in the following: 138 traffic stops or contacts, 100 warnings or repair orders, nine civil speed citations, 13 miscellaneous civil citations, one underage possession of alcohol arrest, eight designated drivers, four seat belt citations, one child restraint violation citation, two possession of marijuana arrests, two possession of drug paraphernalia arrests, one probation violation warrant arrest, one extreme DUI arrest, and two DUI drugs arrests.

With the continuous support from the Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety, the Southeastern Arizona DUI Task Force reminds drivers that if you choose to drive hammered, you will get nailed. Get a designated driver, not a DUI!
