PCC Receives Federal Funds from Governor’s Office of Highway Safety

June 25, 2013

Tucson, AZ – Pima Community College’s Department of Public Safety is partnering with the Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety (AzGOHS) and other local law enforcement agencies to reduce the number of alcohol-impaired drivers on our streets and educate the public about the dangers of driving under the influence.

PCC-DPS has received $11,000 in additional federal funds from the GOHS to support and enhance DUI Enforcement in and around the Pima Community College campuses. The funding is for Oct. 1, 2012 through Sept. 30, 2013.

The funding will provide DUI training sessions for officers as well as participation in Southern Arizona DUI Task Force deployments throughout the year at PCC’s campuses and surrounding patrol areas.   PCC DPS officers will also provide education to students, employees and the public regarding the dangers of impaired driving.

“These focused enforcements are designed to boost public awareness regarding the dangers and potential consequences of impaired driving,” said Manny Amado, Executive Director/Chief of Police of PCC’s Department of Public Safety.
