Community Awareness Through Traffic Safety

University of Arizona Police Department
April 7, 2017

The UAPD Traffic Education and Enforcement Program has expanded its traffic safety initiative to include a program, Community Awareness through Traffic Safety, or CATS.

This high-visibility education and enforcement program targets intersections within and bordering the University of Arizona campus to reduce collisions and increase safety awareness for drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians.

Information on CATS deployment dates, times and locations will be publicized through UAPD, announcements and social media accounts, and through local media.

During the scheduled deployments, UAPD places motorcycle officers at and around targeted intersections. Motorcycle officers actively enforce traffic violations during peak travel times. To accomplish this program, motorcycle officers will be assigned to the targeted locations.

The CATS program is not a ticket-writing campaign but a high-visibility approach to education.

UAPD will deploy officers on the following dates, times and locations to specifically address traffic education and enforcement:

  • April 12, 7-10 a.m.                                         
  • April 26, 7-10 a.m.

Locations: Speedway Boulevard between Euclid Avenue and Campbell Avenue.

Please follow UAPD on Facebook at The University of Arizona Police Department and on Twitter @UofAZPolice.

If you have any questions about campus safety, please contact the UAPD Crime Prevention Unit at 520-621-4219.
