Arizona Department of Public Safety to Participate in I-40 Challenge

“Drive to Zero Fatalities” over Thanksgiving 2017
Tuesday, November 21, 2017 - 7:30am
- For Immediate Release -

Northern Arizona — During the heavily traveled Thanksgiving holiday, troopers will be participating in the nationwide I-40 challenge, “Drive to Zero Fatalities”. The I-40 challenge will be held November 22nd and 26th during the peak holiday travel times, in response to the anticipated increased amount of traffic.

 

The I-40 challenge includes the following states along its 2,555 mile stretch of road: California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Tennessee, and North Carolina. Troopers will be enforcing traffic laws as well as providing assistance to the motoring public.

 

During the two-day operation in 2016, AZDPS troopers wrote 275 citations with a total of 512 moving violations and 488 non-moving violations, investigated 19 collisions, and inspected 39 commercial vehicles.

 

“The Interstate 40 challenge is a collaborative effort to reduce traffic collisions during the main travel days of the Thanksgiving holiday,” said Major John Philpot, Northern Region Commander for the Arizona Department of Public Safety.

 

The challenge was adopted by AZDPS years ago after the Tennessee Highway Patrol was successful in reducing collisions and raising public safety awareness along their stretch of I-40.

Homicide Suspect Arrested by State Trooper in Northern Arizona

Two children rescued, two adults arrested and $50k worth of dangerous drugs were seized during traffic stop near Cordes Junction
Thursday, November 16, 2017 - 7:45am
- For Immediate Release -

Yavapai County, Ariz — A traffic stop by an Arizona State Trooper led to the rescue of two young children, a seizure of black tar heroin, and the arrest of their parents. A subsequent investigation by state detectives revealed a connection between the driver and a 2014 homicide in Aurora, Colorado.

 

On August 22, 2017, at approximately 12:30 p.m., a state trooper stopped a vehicle for excessive window tint. After observing indicators of criminal activity and receiving a positive alert from their canine unit, a search of the vehicle yielded 1.25 lbs. of black tar heroin.  

 

Phoenix residents Bryant Montoya, age 23, and Yeni Solis, age 25, were arrested for child endangerment, transportation for sale of a narcotic drug, and possession of drug paraphernalia. The couple’s two small children were released to the care of the Department of Child Safety.

 

State detectives joined the investigation and discovered a connection between Montoya and a 2014 homicide investigation in Aurora, Colorado that left one person dead and several others injured. DPS detectives are working closely with the Aurora Police Department.

 

AZDPS Deputy Director Heston Silbert said, “traffic stops are one of the most dangerous aspects of police work and our troopers make nearly half a million of them each year. Our trooper’s vigilance and acumen led to the arrest of a fugitive wanted for murder, a seizure of 5,000 hits of heroin, and the removal of innocent children from a hazardous situation.”

AZDPS Joins the Arizona Cardinals in Saluting Our Armed Forces

Veterans Day is a day to honor and remember the veterans that have served in the United States military. Each year, the NFL and its 32 teams come together to honor and support members of the military as part of the NFL's Salute to Service. The league's year-round military appreciation efforts culminate in November with NFL Salute to Service games and other special events honoring veterans, active duty service members and their families.

Salute to Service 4Salute to Service 1

The Arizona Cardinals had the privilege of hosting the United States Armed Forces at their game on November 9, 2017 when they took on the Seattle Seahawks at University of Phoenix Stadium. Fans had the opportunity to meet with and thank these men and women, as well as watch while they performed demonstrations.  Demonstrations included a fast rope repel exercise performed by the 75th Ranger Regiment from a MH-6 helicopter, static aerial military displays and a skydive show performed by eight members of the U.S. Army Special Operations Command Black Daggers Parachute Demonstration Team. On display outside of the stadium were various static transport vehicles used by the U.S. Army Special Operations Command, including a Black Hawk helicopter, along with a variety of weaponry.

 

Salute to Service 2Salute to Service 3Cardinal players wore a #40 sticker on their helmet to honor former Cardinals Safety Pat Tillman who was a member of the 75th Ranger Regiment and killed in action in 2004. All of the proceeds from the NFL’s Salute to Service campaign are donated to the NFL’s three military appreciation nonprofit partners: USO, Pat Tillman Foundation and Wounded Warrior Project.

Members of the Arizona Department of Public Safety had the honor to stand alongside military members, while providing security during the game. On behalf of AZDPS, thank you to the brave men and women who fight for our country.

Governor’s Office of Highway Safety Helps AZDPS Reduce Highway Fatalities

GOHS awards over $92,500.00 in Federal Funds
Friday, November 3, 2017 - 4:15pm
- For Immediate Release -

Phoenix — The Arizona Department of Public Safety (AZDPS) has received $92,536.00 in federal funds, specifically to help with overtime expenses for troopers taking part in enhanced speed enforcement details statewide. The money ­will also be used for the purchase of 15 UltraLyte radar speed measuring instruments that will provide troopers with the tools necessary to help slow people down.

 

 

In 2016, the Department reported 106 speed-related fatalities, 481 speed-related injuries, and issued 122,413 citations for speed/aggressive driving.

 

 

The increased funding will also allow AZDPS to increase manpower directed at special speed enforcement details while maintaining sustained patrol duties.

 

 

The overall goal is to lower the number of speeding-related crashes by December 31, 2018, along with fatalities and injuries. The grant money will also enable troopers to concentrate their speed enforcement efforts by increasing the total number of distracted driver citations/warnings and to help educate the public on the dangers of distracted driving.

 

Assistant DPS Director Lt. Colonel Wayde Webb said, “Statewide enhanced enforcement and purchasing key equipment is key in reducing fatal collisions. We are grateful for our long-standing partnership with GOHS Director Alberto Gutier and his commitment to highway safety.”

Crime Lab Reaches Future Law Enforcement Professionals

The Arizona Department of Public Safety Crime Laboratory’s community outreach program is responsible for educating and informing the public about the job duties our Forensic Scientists do every day.

Crime Lab Outreach2

Since its inception in 2009, the program has made over 300 contacts to nearly 11,000 individuals. The majority of these contacts come from career fairs, college and community tours, community events as well as high school and college class presentations. Already in 2017, the program has reached over 1800 participants.

 

Crime Lab Outreach1

Forensic Scientist Jessica Budrow has been a member of the program for four years. As a member of the program, Burdow gives tours of the crime lab, attends career fairs and stands in as a guest lecturer for various high schools. Recently, Budrow has given lectures at Ironwood High School in Glendale and Centennial High School in Peoria. The curriculum taught to the high school students over a two day period consists of: crime lab functions, forensic scientist job description, units of the laboratory, mock evidence, latent fingerprint processing and showing the students how to gather inked fingerprints.

 

The students are currently enrolled in a law enforcement specific elective class, are either juniors or seniors and have an interest in the field of law enforcement. The outreach program provides a direct line of contact from students to working professionals in the field and gives them an opportunity to see how a crime lab functions. If you are interested in learning more about the program please contact Scott Rex at srex@azdps.gov.

One Person Dead After Two Semis Collide West of Phoenix

Incident Status: 
Active
Incident Date: 
Tuesday, October 24, 2017 - 9:30am
Department Report Number: 
2017-053422
Preliminary Information: 

Tonopah, Ariz - Today, just before 3:00 a.m., Arizona Department of Public Safety (AZDPS) troopers responded to a two-vehicle, fatal crash on eastbound Interstate 10, just east of 339th Avenue.

 

Tonopah Crash1

Preliminary information indicates a semi-truck, loaded with potatoes traveling in the left lane, rear-ended a slower moving semi carrying clothing, also traveling in the left lane. As a result of the impact, the rear semi caught fire. A passenger in that semi was able remove himself from the semi but sadly, the driver of the rear semi was deceased on scene.

Tonopah Crash 2

 

The fire then traveled rearward from the cab of the semi and caught fire to the trailer and its contents as well. Fire personnel responded to the scene and were able to extinguish the fire. The passenger was transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The driver of the front semi was evaluated on scene and was not transported.

 

The collision and fire caused the complete closure of eastbound I-10 but crews were able to eventually open the left lane. The closure of the right lane is anticipated to last for most of the day while crews clean up the burned semi and trailer. The contents of the burned trailer also have to be off-loaded 

and hauled away, which can take some time.

 

Tonopah Crash 3

We ask all motorists to be aware and not drive distracted as they pass by the scene and to pay attention to the road and not what is happening with cleanup. Please, Just Drive!
