MPD To Step Up Speed Enforcement

(Press Release) 08-02-2009

Another 'Joining Forces' Campaign To Start

For the next three weeks, the Mesquite Police Department will be increasing speed enforcement efforts with the goal of saving lives.

Mesquite Police will be working with other law enforcement agencies throughout Nevada in another “Joining Forces” traffic enforcement campaign.

The additional officers will be on patrol in Mesquite enforcing the speed limit and letting drivers know that speed can destroy lives.

The additional officers will be from Mesquite and other agencies across Southern Nevada.

“We want drivers to slow down and arrive safely at their final destination,” said Chief Douglas Law.

“The police department is committed to both educating the public while enforcing the traffic laws simultaneously.”

The “Joining Forces” traffic enforcement campaign is funded by the Nevada Department of Public Safety, Office of Traffic Safety.
