Maricopa County DUI Policies

The Maricopa County Attorney’s Office prosecutes all DUI cases in the city of Mesa. They prosecute over 1,300 DUI cases every year through their Vehicular Crimes Bureau and are known to have some of the most stringent impaired driving policies in the country, not just the state. The Bureau prosecutes crimes involving motor vehicle collisions and incidents in which drivers are found to be driving recklessly or driving under the influence of alcohol, illegal drugs or prescription medication (DUI) as well as cases where drivers illegally flee the scene of injury accidents and collisions.

In addition to participating in DUI task forces, the Vehicular Crimes Bureau has a dedicated repeat offender program (ROP) aimed at keeping drivers with multiple DUI offenses off the roads which includes DUI Court.


DUI Court

DUI Court is a specialty court of Maricopa County’s Superior Court. It is a function that is “to provide direction and treatment to DUI offenders in an effort to change their drinking and driving behavior and to reduce the risk they pose to the safety of the community”. This opportunity for change is afforded through monthly court interaction, monitoring of sobriety, probation supervision and participation in graduated levels of alcohol education and treatment.
