Prescott Valley Police raise money for Firefighter Angel Foundation and Special Olympics in community events Prescott Valley Police Department personnel were recently involved in two major community activities. On Sunday, October 21, 2018 the Prescott Valley Police Department and the Central Arizona Fire and Medical Authority hosted the fourth annual Puente de la Comunidad – Bridge of the Community. The purpose of this event was to recognize the diversity of our community and to provide opportunities for interaction in a relaxed atmosphere. More than 250 community members attended and participated in a raffle, food, games and T-Shirt sales. A contribution of $500 was donated from the Prescott Valley Police Foundation to the Firefighter Angel Foundation which assists families in need. The police department expresses deep appreciation to all the businesses that made the raffle a success. On Thursday, October 25, 2018 Police Department personnel also donated their time joining in the 6th Annual Fry’s Fuel of Dreams. This is a community fundraising event in which Arizona Law Enforcement agencies partner with Fry’s Fuel Centers to pump customers’ gas and clean their windshields in exchange for a donation. All donations collected will benefit Special Olympics Arizona and Law Enforcement Torch Run, this year totaling $1,260.79. These types of events are important to law enforcement because it continues to emphasize community-based policing, which is a primary strategy for Prescott Valley Police Chief, Bryan Jarrell. “Community is the Police Department and the Police Department is the Community. The relationship is not ‘Us & Them;’ it is ‘WE,'" he said. Prescott Valley Police Department can be contacted at (928) 772-9267 for non-emergencies, 911 for emergencies.

PVPD officers and staff participate in No Shave November to fight cancer Not only does the Prescott Valley Police Department fight crime, they also fight cancer. Participating personnel will make a financial donation which will go to the American Cancer Society Relay for Life 2019. Every November the police department personnel make a month long commitment to support anti-cancer efforts. This year’s program will run from November 1 through November 30. PVPD policies have a strict uniform policy; such as, men must have clean-shaven faces (except for mustaches), women must have no colored fingernail polish, and no jeans will be worn on duty. However, for the month of November, these restrictions are lifted. For men, it’s called “No Shave November.” The only restrictions will be that facial hair will be neatly groomed and maintained. The men will wear a special pin to advise the community why they are wearing beards and to inform the public of their charity efforts. For women, it’s called “Nails for No Cancer.” Women will also wear a pin to advise the public of their charity efforts as well as inform the community as to why employees have colored nail polish. For both men and women, a new program has been added, called “Jeans for No Cancer.” The jeans also must be professional looking. Those wearing jeans will wear a pin making the public aware of employee charity efforts. At the end of the month, PVPD personnel will make a donation to the American Cancer Society Relay for Life 2019. Prescott Valley Police Department can be contacted at (928) 772-9267 for non-emergencies, 911 for emergencies.

H.A.L.L.O.W.E.E.N. Safety and You Halloween is almost here. The Prescott Valley Police Department wants to promote safe celebrations by offering the following guidelines for Prescott Valley by use of an acrostic: H - Have an adult always accompany younger children around the neighborhoods that they will be visiting. Older children should always travel in groups, using the “buddy system.” A - Always walk younger children to the door to receive treats and don’t let children enter a home unless you are with them. L - Look in all directions before crossing streets. Do not allow children to approach any vehicle, occupied or not, unless you are with them. L - List your own phone number and address in case you get separated or ill. Know how to use a cell phone and how to call 911 in an emergency. O - Offer only store-bought, securely wrapped treats to your visitors. Remind children to refrain from eating their treats until they are home and it has been checked for safety and lack of tampering. W - Wear fire-resistant costumes with reflective tape on them, making sure the costume allows good visibility. Utilize costume accessories that are short, flexible, and safe; avoid realistic-looking toy weapons. E - Emphasize basic pedestrian safety rules that children should use when walking to and from houses. E – Evaluate where your children will be trick-or-treating and select the safest routes possible when going out. N – New or inexperienced drivers should be encouraged to be extra careful while driving and always keep an eye out for people in the roadway.

Prescott Valley Police plan Halloween DUI/Seat Belt Enforcement This Halloween, Prescott Valley Police will be out in force conducting DUI and Seat Belt Enforcement. The police department will continue its support of the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety (GOHS) DUI Traffic Enforcement Program with this latest round of enforcement beginning tonight through Wednesday, October 31. Focused enforcement hours will be between 6:00 PM and 2:00 AM each night. This selective enforcement is dedicated on this particular weekend with the understanding that many children will be out on the streets after dark, creating an environment which demands increased vigilance on our part and the part of area drivers. Another of the objectives of the enforcement program is to reduce the number of vehicle collisions and the resulting injuries and fatalities through increased highly visible enforcement. Police will focus on occupant restraint, impaired driving, speeding enforcement, and pedestrian safety. Increased patrol efforts will be focused along State Route 69, as this is one of the busiest corridors in the quad city area. This additional enforcement is largely due to recent GOHS grant funds which are designated specifically for these purposes. To help everyone have a safer and more enjoyable Halloween, the Prescott Valley Police Department reminds everyone, if you drink alcoholic beverages have a designated driver and buckle-up. It only takes a second or two to fasten a seat belt. You can help make our roads safer. If you observe an impaired or reckless driver, or observe any unsafe driving, report it by contacting the Prescott Valley Police Department (928) 772-9267 or call 911 Prescott Valley Police Department can be contacted at (928) 772-9267 for non-emergencies, 911 for emergencies.

Governor's Office of Highway Safety awards three grants to the Prescott Valley Police Department Three grants from the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety (GOHS) have been extended to the Prescott Valley Police Department and all three promote improved safety on our streets and highways. The first grant is designated for overtime and equipment which makes it possible to place traffic officers in areas where most crashes occur and where violations are most concerning. Due to normal calls for service, it is often difficult to staff these types of selective enforcement. This grant, in the amount of $25,000, will be designated strictly to this mission of the Selective Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP). In addition to workforce costs, this STEP grant has allowed for the placement of electronic speed display systems in high traffic areas to help reduce speeding through voluntary compliance and driver education. The STEP grant will also enable one targeted traffic detail per quarter with the goal of reducing fatal crashes to zero, reducing non-injury as well as injury collision rates by 5 percent. The second grant is designated for DUI enforcement in the amount of $28,000. This funding will be applied to staffing of DUI patrols, Know Your Limit, Education and a DUI Command Post that accompanies DUI saturation patrols. Additionally, these funds will enable the acquisition of five portable breath testing devices to be used during DUI enforcement as well as public education such as Know Your Limit. Overtime DUI patrols will be deployed during holidays and special events in Prescott Valley with the overall goal of reducing DUI related crashes and participation in driver impairment education. The third grant will focus on pedestrian and bicycle safety and is awarded in the amount of $9,653. The goal will be to reduce collisions involving pedestrians or bicycles and motor vehicles. This grant will provide for staffing of personnel to host bicycle and pedestrian safety events, enforce crosswalk violations, and provide safety equipment such as pedestrian reflectors, bicycle helmets, and lights to help keep pedestrians and bicyclists safe. The Prescott Valley Police Department will conduct numerous safety and educational events targeting all ages from children to seniors through the year. Analysis of prior grant funding has proven that the ability to allow officers to focus on a specific issue of concern translates to remarkably effective results, which we look forward to continuing in the years to come. GOHS grants such as these are very effective tools in keeping our streets and highways safe. • Remember: If you observe reckless or impaired driving contact law enforcement immediately. The Prescott Valley Police Department would like to thank the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety for partnering with us to improve the safety of the roadways in and around Prescott Valley. Prescott Valley Police Department can be contacted at (928) 772-9267 for non-emergencies, 911 for emergencies.
