In times when the economy has hit many families negatively, voters showed Arizona that public safety is a priority. The Arizona Highway Patrol Association (AHPA) thanks voters who supported Proposition 100. The temporary sales tax will allow Department of Public Safety (DPS) to operate at its current levels.
“Arizona Highway Patrol Association is thankful people understood what devastating cuts would have resulted to our department if Prop 100 did not pass,” states Sgt. Jimmy Chavez, President of the Arizona Highway Patrol Association. Prop 100 will allow DPS to operate at its present conditions and keep an estimated 100 officers. “Arizona citizens can count on the dedicated personnel of DPS continue to do their job professionally and with pride.”
The Arizona Highway Patrol Association (AHPA) also thanks Governor Janice Brewer for spearheading the measure and Director Robert Halliday for providing insight into the DPS budget.
