In an effort to save more lives on Arizona’s roadways this month the Arizona Governor's Office of Highway Safety is partnering with the Mesa Police Department and other local law enforcement agencies to enforce Arizona’s seat belt and child safety seat laws. From Monday, May 21 through Sunday, June 3, 2018 we will be conducting high visibility traffic enforcement with a “zero-tolerance” approach towards seat belt and child safety seat usage. Read all about it on the blog:

This summer, MPD officers will be dispensing well-deserved Slurpee® justice to good kids in Mesa. For the 23rd year, 7-Eleven® is working with local police and sheriff’s departments to distribute free Slurpee® drink coupons to children and youth through its popular Operation Chill® community-service program. Appropriate “offenses” might include helping another person, deterring crime or participating in a community- or police-sponsored event. Although the reasons for being “ticketed” are varied, the end result is the same for every youngster: a free Slurpee drink and a smile for being a good kid. Each coupon can be redeemed for a small Slurpee drink at participating 7-Eleven stores. Read more on our crime blog:

Four years ago today, Sgt. Brandon Mendoza, on his way home from work, was hit head on by a wrong way driver on the freeway. He died a few hours later at the hospital. The driver of the other vehicle was killed instantly. Sgt. Mendoza started his law enforcement career as one of our Police Explorers. He then became an Animal Control officer before entering the academy and becoming an officer of 13 years. Today, we remember and honor his service to our Department and the community he loved. There will be a purple balloon release at Queen of Heaven cemetery tonight at 6:00pm if anyone wishes to attend. Bring your own balloons. The cemetery is located at 1562 E Baseline Road in Mesa.

The Mesa Motor Unit would like to thank Bill Hengen and Road Safe Traffic Systems for donating over 300 cones for use at our recent Motor School. These cones provided our Officers the opportunities to learn slow cone work skills that will be critical to their new positions as a Motor Officer.

Re-Posting for more awareness: According to an entry in the Urban Dictionary, Car Hopping is “the act of secretly entering someone’s automobile and taking whatever one finds useful, profitable or interesting.” Car Hopping is a crime of opportunity that is sweeping the country. It has become a car burglar’s preferred method of taking advantage of people. Criminals will walk a street and lift door handles on cars as they pass. If a car is left unlocked, they will go through it and take what they want, usually items they can easily sell; occasionally it will be weapons. If the doors are locked, they keep moving. During the first three months of this year in Mesa, approximately 63% of vehicle burglaries were from unlocked cars. When you get home, please take your property inside with you. This includes laptops, tablets, cell phones, guns, jewelry, kids sports bags, wallets, purses, sun glasses, cameras, etc. TAKE IT … LOCK IT … KEEP IT! See recent Blog Post for pictures and video of car hopping at work.
