Coconino County Sheriff’s Office, Flagstaff Police Department, AZ Department of Public Safety and Northern Arizona University Police will be partnering to create a DUI Task Force on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.
The team will be posting several DUI trailers throughout the region where officers can take individuals suspected to be driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol to gather samples of breath and blood draws. Enforcement patrols will also be increased in Sanders, Holbrook, Winslow, Flagstaff and Williams from Dec. 31 through Jan. 1.

Law enforcement officials want to remind people not to drive while under the influence, noting that options like taxis, Uber and LYFT are cheaper and safer. NAIPTA will also be offering free bus service on New Year’s Eve until 1:15 am.
Arrests for DUI result in mandatory jail time if convicted, with a minimum of one night in jail.
“Don’t take a chance of ruining your life or the life of someone else by driving intoxicated or recklessly,” the Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.
