Agen­cies say they’re con­sid­er­ing a Navajo County DUI task force

The Arizona Republic - - AROUND ARIZONA -

HOLBROOK — The Ari­zona De­part­ment of Public Safety says a DUI en­force­ment op­er­a­tion be­ing con­ducted Satur­day in Navajo County could be a pre­cur­sor to for­ma­tion of a task force in that part of north­east­ern Ari­zona.

The DPS, the county Sher­iff’s Of­fice and the Holbrook and Winslow po­lice de­part­ments says Satur­day’s op­er­a­tion is be­ing con­ducted in the Holbrook area in con­junc­tion with sev­eral events, in­clud­ing the county fair.

DPS Capt. Gary Phelps says it’s the first such en­force­ment op­er­a­tion planned by the agen­cies in­volved and he says they’re con­sid­er­ing the pos­si­bil­ity of form­ing a for­mal DUI task force, along the old Route 66 cor­ri­dor.
