Tucson Police Mentoring Program a Success

The Tucson Police Department's (TPD) mentoring program began about two years ago in the Operations Division Downtown to connect experienced officers with newer ones to share experiences and insights about the job.

They attend meetings of the Citizen Police Advisory Review Board (CPARB) and the Pedestrian Advisory Committee, as well as spending time with detectives, specialty units, and the force commander. The meetings are based on individual interests and career goals.

Starr Pass Boulevard - La Cholla Boulevard to Mission Road Asphalt Maintenance Work

Crews from the City of Tucson Department of Transportation’s Streets and Traffic Maintenance Division will conduct pothole repairs on Starr Pass Boulevard from La Cholla Boulevard to Mission Road. The work will take place from Wednesday, December 2, 2015 through Friday, December 4, 2015. Work hours will be 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day. 

Because sections of this roadway are one lane in each direction, flaggers will be on site to direct travel through the work zone. The speed limit in the work zone will be reduced to 15 miles per hour.

Sixth Street and Sixth Avenue Travel Restrictions

Starting tonight at 8 o'clock, the eastbound curb lane on Sixth Street and the northbound curb lane on Sixth Avenue will be closed from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. through Friday. As part of the City of Tucson Department of Transportation's Downtown Links Phase III project, Century Link is continuing work to relocate existing facilities within project limits. The closures will allow crews to conduct underground utility work in manholes.

Holiday Shopping Safety Tips

With the holiday shopping season underway, the Tucson Police Department's (TPD) Financial Crimes Unit is offering some tips to help you avoid becoming a victim of fraud.

Tips include carrying only the credit cards or checks you will need, keeping visual contact with your credit card when making a purchase, and making sure the receipt you sign matches the total of your purchase. You should also hold onto your receipts and compare them with your monthly statements. If you bank online, check your account activity frequently to make sure there aren't any fraudulent charges.
