Peoria Police Department - Arizona Investigating Drowning On May 28, 2018, at approximately 8:00 AM, police and paramedics responded to the 8800 block of West Brown Street in regard to a possible child drowning in a residential pool. The child was pulled from the pool by an adult, who immediately began providing life saving measures to the child until Peoria Fire-Medical Department arrived and took over. Peoria Fire-Medical arrived on scene and transported the child to a local hospital doing all they could to save the young boy. At approximately 8:37 AM, the 4-year-old boy passed away at the hospital. Peoria detectives responded to the scene and are conducting a thorough investigation into this incident; however, preliminary investigation shows the child may have used a chair to exit the home and an additional chair to open the pool gate. Peoria detectives will determine if any charges are warranted. At this time, no arrests have been made. This is an active ongoing investigation and as more information becomes available, it will be released. The Peoria Police Department and Fire-Medical Department extend our deepest condolences to the family and friends of the young victim. #peoriaaz #peoriapoliceaz

Buckle Up Arizona…It’s the Law! Enforcement Campaign Arizona Occupant Protection Enforcement Program Monday, May 21 through Sunday, June 3, 2018 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 Peoria Police Department - Arizona and other local law enforcement agencies to enforce Arizona’s seat belt and child safety seat laws. Arizona presently conducts enforcement under a secondary seat belt law and a primary child safety seat law. The enforcement campaign is based upon high visibility traffic enforcement with a “zero-tolerance” approach towards seat belt and child safety seat usage. As part of the national Click It or Ticket seat belt enforcement campaign, law enforcement agencies across the state will be stepping up traffic enforcement patrols and increasing other enforcement efforts to drive home the message: Buckle Up Arizona…It’s the Law! Despite widespread efforts to educate drivers about the importance of wearing seat belts, motor vehicles collisions continue to be the leading cause of death and serious injuries to the citizens of our state. The enforcement mobilization will run from May 21, 2018 through June 3, 2018. Regular seat belt use is the single most effective way to protect people and reduce fatalities in motor vehicle crashes. When worn correctly, seat belts have proven to reduce serious crash-related injuries and deaths by about 50%. The proper and consistent use of child safety seats has been found to reduce the risk of fatal injury by 71% for infants (younger than 1 year old) and by 54% for toddlers (1 to 4 years old) in passenger cars. Properly installed booster seats reduce the risk for serious injury by 45% among children ages 4 to 8 years old. Funding was provided by the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety. BUCKLE UP ARIZONA….IT’S THE LAW #BuckleUp #clickitorticket #peoriaaz #peoriapoliceaz

We would much rather run into these two in a backyard on an alarm call, than a burglar! Thankfully, Officer Meeks likes dogs!! #peoriaaz #peoriapoliceaz #dog #dogs #community #bassethound #dogsoffacebook

Peoria Police Offers Summer Safety Reminders As we head toward the summer break, the Peoria Police Department - Arizona would like to offer some information and reminders to ensure that everyone has a safe and enjoyable summer. We encourage parents and guardians to discuss safety and the following items before summer break. As always, you can contact the Police Department with any questions. Curfew: Everyone enjoys being out and about in the evening hours, but please be safe and remember the City of Peoria has a curfew law (Peoria City Code 13-71). Peoria officers will continue to enforce these laws throughout the summer. The law prohibits teens from being in public during certain hours, seven days a week unless accompanied by a legal guardian. It is also illegal for a parent and/or guardian to allow a minor to be in public during curfew hours. 15 Years and Under – 10pm – 5am 16 – 17 Years Old – 12am – 5am Alcohol: This time of year, we very often see a rise in underage alcohol offenses whether it is at parties or behind the wheel of a car. The Peoria Police Department is committed to the safety of our youth and will continue to aggressively enforce all liquor laws. Please remember that providing alcohol to minors is illegal. It is also illegal to host parties where underage consumption is occurring, and the homeowner can be responsible for any civil actions. It is illegal for anyone under twenty-one years of age to possess or consume any amount of alcohol. All DUI laws also apply to minors and even one drink can result in an arrest. Driving: We understand that teens are excited to drive, but please remind your teen that safety is most important! Give your full attention to driving Wear your seatbelt Watch your speed Do not text or allow any other distractions while driving Do not drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol Together we can ensure a safe and enjoyable summer for everyone in Peoria! #peoriaaz #peoriapoliceaz #safety #summer #summersafety #workingtogether #youth #school #summerbreak
