DPS Patrols Increase For Super Bowl Weekend

January 31, 2014

The Arizona Department of Public Safety says it will have extra patrols on the roads Sunday night to keep tabs on post-Super Bowl partiers.

Spokesman Raul Garcia says the Saturation Patrols will start at 6 p.m. and continue through early Monday morning.

“Just by seeing the added patrol vehicles out there in addition to what you might normally see on a Sunday to Monday morning, we know and we expect will be a deterrent in itself,” Garcia said.

Garcia says the added patrols will also help with processing arrested drunk drivers and allow patrol officers to get back on the street in a shorter period of time.
