On Saturday, May 29, 2021, AZDPS and partners from the Winslow Police Department, Navajo County Sheriff's Office and the Arizona Department of Transportation conducted a DUI checkpoint on SR-87 at milepost 341.8, near Winslow. 🚔🚔

The checkpoint served as a visible deterrent to motorists who might otherwise drive while impaired, while also allowing law enforcement officers to stop and remove impaired drivers from the highway.

This special enforcement effort resulted in a total of 208 traffic stops and 14 arrests, including 8 arrests for DUI.

The checkpoint was spearheaded by District 3's Trooper Curnutte, who has also helped increase enforcement details by the Route 66 D.U.I. Task Force along I-40 from New Mexico to California.

Thank you to all our partners, and to all the law enforcement officers and volunteers who work hard to make a difference on Arizona’s highways! 🛣

Navajo County Sheriff’s Office sends our thoughts and prayers to the family of Officer New and the Phoenix Police Department. Rest In Peace Sir.

We are heartbroken by the incident which took the life of 27-year-old, Officer Ginarro New. On May 31, 2021, Officer New was involved in an on-duty collision near Cave Creek and Greenway. He was transported to a nearby hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries. He is survived by his wife Kristen, his mother, Misty, his brother, Marcas, and his grandmother, Susan.

Please keep Officer New’s family in your thoughts and prayers.

Afternoon winds with gusts up to 20-30 mph are expected through Sunday under mostly sunny skies. A chance for high-based thunderstorms and showers moves into mainly eastern Arizona and across much of the Navajo Nation by Monday. The main hazards currently are for dry lightning and gusty outflow winds. Any rainfall appears to be limited at this time from any showers and thunderstorms.

“Okay, rule five: safety first, i.e don’t burn the building down. Okay? That should be a no brainer.” -Michael Scott

Our firefighters, first responders and emergency management team are run pretty ragged these days (see recent press release and multiple messages about fire safety). Every Monday, data is coming in about illegal campfires, some resulting in bigger burns. Our responders are doing a great job.

👉In the Apache-Sitgreaves Forest alone at any given time, there’s 50-60 personnel patrolling over 2 million acres. In mathspeak, that’s 50/2,000,000. That’s where you come in…
The help our residents (YOU) have provided in phoning in illegal/unattended campfires makes a powerful impact in preserving resources. This means you might be responsible for saving LIVES.

Put your cape on and hear us out: the more people who are aware of safe fire practices and local restrictions, the less we stand to lose. Besides phoning in illegal/unattended campfires, you can also casually bring up fire safety in every conversation you’re going to have from now until monsoon season. You’ve helped us out, so we’re going to help you. Here’s some effective scripts:

1) “Did you know you can’t walk away from a campfire to sleep for the night or even take a nice stroll? You need to drown the fire, stir the fire, and then feel the fire to make sure it’s properly extinguished before walking away for any reason.” [A quick “Drown! Stir! Feel!” cheer would work well here, especially if you’re out in public]

2) [Hold a handheld mirror up] “Sometimes I like to look in the mirror and remember [pause for effect], I’m the only one who can prevent human caused forest fires.”

3) “Where are you headed to camp this summer? Don’t forget to check their website and/or phone in to check restrictions. Know before you go!”

4) “This past week on the Apache/Sitgreaves Forest, there were 23 illegal campfires including 1 left abandoned and two that caused fire starts outside of the campfire area. I wonder if they know the federal fines they’re risking incurring…” [this stat will change weekly, so make sure you’re following us online to catch our data updates]

Keep that cape on.
You’re needed now more than ever.

🚩**Red Flag Warning has been issued for Thursday for Navajo County! **🚩
Please be *EXTRA* careful to ensure our communities safety.
✅Your vehicle and tire pressure!
✅Chain length if towing to make sure you don't drag!

#OneLessWildFire

Critical fire weather conditions are expected across much of northern Arizona on Thursday. A Red Flag Warning has been issued for this Thursday for all of Yavapai, Coconino, Navajo, and Apache counties. Very strong gusty winds out of the southwest and low relative humidity will work to further dry already dry vegetation. Even one spark has the potential to start a serious wildfire with extreme fire behavior. These dangerous conditions could continue Friday and into the weekend. Stay tuned for weather updates, and always check local fire restrictions when working or recreating outside
