The Apache County Sheriff’s Office received a $14,900 Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety grant to conduct Selective Traffic Enforcement patrols throughout the county.“The money was designated to be utilized throughout 2017,” ACSO Sgt. Shane Bevington said.
He noted that ACSO has conducted impaired driver enforcement details around specific holidays and other events throughout the year, thanks to the grant.
Bevington said ACSO would not be able to provide the additional impaired driver enforcement activities along with targeting other traffic law violations in Apache County without the GOHS grant.
“The Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety is a valuable partner to the Apache County Sheriff’s Office for many years. Through this partnership, the Apache County Sheriff’s Office has received new equipment, vehicles and overtime funding to conduct traffic and impaired driving enforcement related activities throughout the County,” Sheriff Joseph Dedman said.
