MCSO AWARDED ADDITIONAL GOHS FUNDING

The Mohave County Sheriff’s Office would like to inform the public about additional funding received by the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety. On November 2, 2020, this office reported received funding of $3,511 for Portable Breath Test Machines and $5,100 for Radar Units for Patrol vehicles.
On Monday (2/1) The Mohave County Board of Supervisors approved the acceptance of an additional $7,861 for Radar Units and an additional $4,660 for Portable Breath Test machines and blood test kits.

All of these items are extremely vital to our ongoing efforts of reducing speed and DUI related incidents. Sheriff Schuster would like to thank Director Gutier and the Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety for their continued support of the safety of Mohave County and its citizens.

ORIGINAL (11/02/2020) – MCSO AWARDED GOHS GRANT

Sheriff Doug Schuster is pleased to announce that the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office has received funding from the Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety to purchase:

 Portable Breath Test machines ($3,511)
 Radar Units for Patrol vehicles ($5,100)

The Mohave County Sheriff’s Office will use the Portable Breath Testers as a way to enhance DUI enforcement throughout Mohave County. We currently use PBT machines for DUI cases, however half of our patrol deputies do not have a PBT machine readily available for their use. The PBT machines funded through this grant will assist in detecting impairment, thus reducing the amount of alcohol-related crashes.

We also frequently encounter youth alcohol parties in remote desert areas or in unsupervised homes. The Mohave County Sheriff’s Office has zero-tolerance for youth alcohol violations. When encountered, these PBT machines will allow us to safely account for and turn over youth who may have consumed alcohol to responsible adults, parents, and/or guardians. Speeding complaints continue to be an element of a community’s quality of life concerns. Speeding vehicles create dangerous conditions for members of the community. Not all deputies have a radar unit available and this grant funding will assist us in supplying them to the necessary deputies. This will allow our agency to conduct more traffic enforcement in the county, resulting in a reduction of speed-related crashes.
