Operation Home Safe

Operation-Home-Safe-logo

Operation Home Safe is under way! The Apache Junction Police Department has partnered with the Walmart store at 2555 W. Apache Trail and the Circle K store at 85 W. Superstition Blvd. in Operation Home Safe. This partnership, along with the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety, asks all community members and guests to travel the roadways safely this holiday season. Through Jan. 4, 2019 there will be increased efforts in traffic enforcement which are focusing on drivers who are being distracted or driving aggressively.

There will also be some “positive reinforcement,” whereby those driving safely may find themselves encountered by a police officer who may recognize them as a safe, courteous and patient driver. 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 Community Resource Coordinator at (480) 474-5442 or cru@ajcity.net.

Thank you for allowing us to serve you and please stay safe and enjoy our community.
