Arizona Highway Patrol recognizes heroes involved in a recent cancelled Amber Alert

(Tempe, Arizona) – It was Public Safety Day during Arizona State University’s basketball game on January 26th, where first responders received discounted tickets and were recognized during the game.  Firefighters and Highway Patrol officers faced-off in a three point shoot-out, where AHPA outscored fire 78-60.

The Arizona Highway Patrol Association (AHPA) honored three key Department of Public Safety (DPS) employees that helped cancel an Arizona Amber Alert on January 8th, 2013.  The fast-acting employees were recognized at Wells Fargo Arena during halftime.

“These Arizona Highway Patrol Association members were heroic in recovering the teen,” stated Jimmy Chavez, President of the Arizona Highway Patrol Association.  “Today the young girl is home with her family because of these fine men and women from the Department of Public Safety.”

AHPA honored:

*Officer Henry Ross, the highway patrolman who located the Tempe girl and her abductor outside of Quartzsite.

*Alane Gidel, intelligence research specialist who researched and disseminated accurate information to all law enforcement agencies.

*Diane Greene, 9-1-1 dispatcher who assisted Officer Ross in recovering the Tempe girl.

First responders received contributions from generous fans who attended the ASU Basketball game.  The total going to AHPA’s charity will be announced at our next meeting (February 20th).  Thank you to all the members who participated.
