The Scottsdale Police Department will be conducting DUI task forces Jan. 27-Feb. 6 for the Barrett-Jackson Auto Action and Waste Management Phoenix Open, according to officials.

The DUI task forces are in collaboration with:

  • Chandler Police Department
  • Department of Public Safety
  • Gilbert Police Department
  • Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office
  • Phoenix Police Department
  • Tempe Police Department

The goal of the officers assigned to the Task Force is to contact those drivers that have made the disastrous decision to drive impaired, and remove them from the roadway before they hurt themselves or others.

Four separate Know Your Limit details will also be conducted, from Feb. 3 through Feb. 6 at the conclusion of play each day of the Waste Management Open, according to a press release.

The Know Your Limit program is designed specifically to provide intoxicated patrons with an approximate Breath Alcohol Reading, as well as the penalties and ramifications of making the decision to operate a motor vehicle impaired. Typically officers working this four day detail will contact between 6,000 and 8,000 people, the release stated.

As always, the best choice someone can make, should they plan on consuming alcoholic beverages, is to find some other form of transportation that does not involve them operating a motor vehicle, police urge.
