The Governor's Office of Highway Safety (GOHS) gave the Williams Police Department $43,000 in grant money to purchase and equip a new police vehicle.

The grant is part of the DUI enforcement grant but also includes highway safety, school zone enforcement and prevention of alcohol abuse by juveniles. The vehicle includes a state of the art radar unit and in car camera system.

Police Chief Herman Nixon said the department has been very successful in obtaining grants.

"In fact, the city hasn't had to purchase a police vehicle in the last five years," Nixon said. "This is due to the hard work of Tad Wygal, Mike DiMuria and Darrell Hixson."

The Williams Police Department participates in the northern Arizona DUI task force on holidays. Nixon said a successful operation results in zero arrests.

"This may sound funny but if people understand that we are out there looking for impaired drivers and they choose to take a cab or designate a driver then we have been successful," Nixon said.

The Governor's Office also recently gave the Williams Police department another $3,500 grant to cover officer overtime when they participate in DUI operations.
