Joining Forces is a multi-jurisdictional law enforcement program aimed at reducing injuries and crashes through statewide enforcement in the areas of: DUI, speed, distracted driving, seat belt and pedestrian safety.
The goal of this enforcement campaign was to increase public awareness about the dangers of making poor choices while driving to help save lives.
A Joining Forces grant received from the Nevada Department of Public Safety/Office of Traffic Safety made these extra patrols possible.
