The Governor’s Office of Highway Safety recently awarded the Marana Police Department three grants that total $85,000 in overtime funding.

DUI/Impaired Driving Enforcement Grant. GOHS has awarded the Marana Police Department with $40,000 in grant funding to conduct DUI enforcement throughout the Town of Marana. The goal of the funding is to reduce alcohol and drug-related driving, fatalities and injuries through enforcement, education and public awareness.   

Selective Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP) Grant. GOHS has awarded the Marana Police Department with $30,000 in grant funding to conduct speed and traffic enforcement throughout the Town of Marana. The goal of this grant is to reduce traffic fatalities and injuries resulting from speeding, aggressive driving, red light running and other forms of risky driving behavior through enforcement, education and public awareness.   

Know Your Limit Grant. GOHS has awarded the Marana Police Department with $15,000 in grant funding to expand additional educational programs and intervention techniques beyond our outreach programs already in place with local schools and the Citizen’s Academy. Marana officers will be going out to events where alcohol is served and providing public awareness and education on the effects of consuming alcohol.
