Quartzsite Police Department Chief Jeff Gilbert
encourages citizens to
Please Be Safe this New Year's Eve
During this holiday season, law enforcement officers will be out in full force looking for drunk and impaired drivers. Please enjoy the Holiday season, but to do so responsibly by getting a designated driver, not a DUI!
And please remember that in 1999, 14-year-old Shannon Smith was killed by a stray bullet from random gunfire while in her own backyard. It's now illegal to shoot a gun into the air, under Shannon's Law, and breaking this law is a felony in Arizona.
The Quartzsite Police Department wishes everyone a safe and Happy New Year!
