“As we start a new school year, I want everyone to understand that the safety of our children is paramount and something that I take very serious. Like many of you, I too have children in school and know that details like this are a great reminder to our drivers to take it slow through these school zones,” said Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb. “Thank you to all the agencies who were a part of this operation.” Operation Safe Kids was made possible with funding from the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety.
PCSO would like to thank Director Alberto Gutier and everyone at GOHS for their continued support of traffic enforcement operations in Pinal County.
