GOHS Awards ASUPD Multiple Grants and Equipment to Improve Campus Safety

October 17, 2022

The Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety has awarded the Arizona State University Police Department $66,446 in grant money to help reduce traffic-related issues in and around the ASU Tempe, West, Downtown Phoenix and Polytechnic campuses.

The ASU Police Department will receive three separate grants (totaling $66,446) from the GOHS for the 2023 fiscal year, including:

  • A $36,446 DUI enforcement grant will apply to costs associated with DUI task force deployments, as well as the purchase of an Intoxilyzer 9000, and other new equipment for DUI patrols.
  • A $20,000 speed enforcement grant will be dedicated to the purchase of a pro-laser IV LIDAR (Light Detecting and Ranging) speed measurement device, as well as speed enforcement across ASU campuses.
  • A $10,000 grant will be applied to pedestrian and bicycle enforcement to help combat pedestrian-related accidents across the country by targeting pedestrian and bicycle-related offenses.

These GOHS grants allow the ASU Police Department to create a safer environment across our four Phoenix metropolitan campuses, assisting in the Department’s DUI prevention efforts and stance against underage alcohol consumption. Crimes which too often result in the tragic loss of life, and carry additional financial and criminal consequences.
