"WE PROWL THE NIGHTS TO SAVE LIVES"
On the average weekend night, 1 out of every 7 drivers is driving under the influence. In 2004, there were 1,120 fatal vehicle collisions in Arizona. Of those, 470 (42%) were alcohol related. The Scottsdale Police Department is attacking this issue vigorously by establishing the Nighttime DUI Squad. Our primary mission is to increase DUI deterrence and decrease the number of alcohol related crashes, injuries, and deaths. In our unmarked patrol cars, we prowl the roadways looking for impaired and unsafe drivers. Every night we do our part to educate the public and prevent impaired drivers from injuring or killing themselves or any countless number of innocent victims while committing a crime that is 100% preventable.
