Operation Home Safe is under way! The Apache Junction Police Department (AJPD) has partnered with the Apache Junction Walmart (2555 Apache Trail) and the Superstition Circle K (85 W. Superstition Blvd) in Operation Home Safe.
This partnership, along with the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety (GOHS), asks all community members and guests to travel the roadways safely this holiday season.
From now through January 4th, 2019, there will be increased efforts in traffic enforcement that are focusing on drivers who are being distracted or driving aggressively.
On a positive note, there will also be some “positive reinforcement,” whereby those driving safely may find themselves encountered by an AJPD officer who may recognize them as safe, courteous and patient drivers. In these encounters, the driver may receive a gift card from Walmart or Circle K instead of a traffic ticket!
Chief Thomas E. Kelly states, “Help us reward you this holiday season, decrease those chances of injury and save lives. Put away the distracting devices within your vehicle and focus on safe vehicle operations. Be considerate, slow down and make it HOME SAFE. Have a safe Holiday Season, and be careful out there. We care about you.”
If you should have any additional questions or would like more information, please feel free to contact the AJPD Community Resource Coordinator at 480-474-5442 or email@example.com.
Thank you for allowing us to serve you, and please, stay safe and enjoy our community.
