Game and Fish officers to get more help in OHV DUI efforts

Dec. 9, 2011

The Arizona Game and Fish Department received a grant for $4,000 from the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety which allows for the purchase of eight Preliminary Breath Testing (PBT) devices.

These devices are field-based units that can help determine if someone is driving or operating under the influence. In Arizona, .08 is the legal limit for driving any motor vehicle or operating a boat.

“The department’s objective is to increase our DUI enforcement efforts through off-highway vehicle (OHV) patrol efforts,” said Jimmy Simmons, OHV law enforcement program manager. “With the nine new law enforcement specialists we have employed, these PBTs will be used on their OHV patrol efforts, task force operations and DUI/OHV details, to aid them in apprehending OHV operators that are driving under the influence.

The use of the PBTs should help decrease the chance of off-highway collisions or accidents before they occur, and in addition, keep people from driving under the influence on the state’s roadways.

The department is training officers in Advanced Roadside Impaired Driver Enforcement (ARIDE) and Drug Recognition Expert (DRE) training, which will also ramp up efforts to make the state a safer place to recreate on and off the highway as well as on our state’s waters.

The Arizona Governor's Office of Highway Safety is the focal point for highway safety issues in Arizona. GOHS is a cabinet agency that provides leadership by developing, promoting, and coordinating programs; influencing public and private policy; and increasing public awareness of highway safety.
