Fire Ban in Desert Parks and Preserves Starts May 1https://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/parks-and-recreation/3078Parks and Recreation4/19/2024 9:00:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/3078/Phoenix-Mountain-Preserve.jpgFire Ban in Desert Parks and Preserves Starts May 1<div class="ExternalClass85336C54B5D449EFBC16497AFE21DD2B"><html> <p>The Phoenix Parks and Recreation Department will put into effect its annual ban of open fires in the City's desert parks and mountain preserves starting Wednesday, May 1, 2024. The Maricopa County Parks and Recreation Department's annual fire ban goes into effect the same day .</p><p>In consultation with the Phoenix Fire Department, smoking and charcoal fires are included in the ban due to the extreme fire danger that the combination of low humidity, increased temperatures, excessive dry vegetation, and frequent high winds create each spring.</p><p>The ban applies to <strong>Camelback Mountain, Deem Hills Recreation Area, Lookout Mountain, Papago Park, Phoenix Mountains Park and Recreation Area, Phoenix Mountains Preserve, Phoenix Sonoran Preserve, North Mountain Park, Rio Salado Habitat Restoration Area, and South Mountain Park/Preserve.</strong></p><p>The ban does not apply to the City's flatland parks.</p><p>For those using the City's desert parks and preserve land, the fire ban stipulates the following:</p><p>·       Open wood and charcoal fires are prohibited</p><p>·       Propane or gas grills may be used, but only in established picnic areas</p><p><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><strong>The following activities continue to be prohibited year-round:</strong></span></p><ul style="" class="" dir=""><li>Smoking outside enclosed vehicles </li><li>Fireworks</li></ul><p>Motorists traveling through or near Phoenix's desert parks and mountain preserves should use extreme care with smoking materials and dispose of those only in their vehicle's ash tray.</p><p>To protect their homes, residents whose property borders the City's preserve land may remove dry shrubs, brush and grasses, and trim dead branches from trees within the 10-foot strip of land that borders their property. By creating this 10-foot "buffer zone" residents can help to protect their homes from potential brush fires in the adjacent preserve land.</p><p>Preserve neighbors also should check irrigation lines and pool back-flush hoses to ensure that water is not seeping into the preserve. Outside water sources encourage unnaturally dense vegetation growth, which increases fire risk.<br></p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/parksNewsparks-and-recreationParks & Rec
​ City Exhibit Takes Aim at Sexual Assault Victim “Shaming" and “Blaming"https://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/30794/19/2024 4:00:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/3079/library.jpg​ City Exhibit Takes Aim at Sexual Assault Victim “Shaming" and “Blaming"<div class="ExternalClass528E88C714FC416F97FA616B56521FCD"><html> <p>​<span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;">The City of Phoenix's Strategic Initiatives team invites you to visit a powerful exhibit to raise awareness about sexual assault as part of April's “Let's Talk Teal Campaign." April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, and the city provides resources and awareness events all month.</span></p> <p>The exhibit titled “What were you wearing?" draws attention to the “rape culture," where questions and statements like these are common, and put the blame on the victim. Victim shaming and blaming discourages victims from coming forward to report the crime and seek help. The display features the stories of several survivors and a representation of the clothes they were wearing when they were assaulted. </p> <p>The exhibit is on display at Burton Barr Library on the 2nd floor through April 24th.</p> <p>The <a target="_blank" href="/humanservices/programs/strategicinitiatives">City of Phoenix's Strategic Initiatives</a> section collaborates with community partners to combat domestic violence, sexual assault, unhealthy youth relationships, human trafficking, and to end the HIV/AIDS epidemic.

Operation Makeup Breakuphttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/police/3077Police4/19/2024 12:00:00 AMhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b_2RWf2kCisOperation Makeup Breakup<div class="ExternalClassD2BFF659F0AD40889598610F676EACBE"><html> <p>The Phoenix Police Department recently made multiple arrests and recovered hundreds of thousands of dollars in stolen property in an organized retail theft investigation, Operation Makeup Breakup.</p> <p> <br>On Thursday, April 18, 2024, the Department and the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office provided statements to the public as well as video surveillance, body worn camera footage, and photographs highlighting the investigation and what was seized after executing multiple search warrants.<br><br>The six-month long investigation looked into an organized cosmetic retail fence; a fence being the individual or group who are purchasing stolen goods and reselling for a profit.<br><br>As a result of the investigation, three women were arrested and detectives were able to recover over 20,000 items, valued at over $560,000.<br><br>The fence was operating three “stores” out of homes in the Phoenix and Tonopah area. Rooms in these homes had been converted into the store fronts that people were invited in to purchase the cosmetics. These stores were not the only way the items were being sold, they were also being sold online and shipped, in some cases in bulk to other states and countries.<br><br>Over the course of the investigation, detectives learned that this fence had been operating for five years.<br><br>The fence purchased the stolen cosmetics from various boosters, individuals who steal or shoplift the goods to sell. Boosters are known to have a “shopping list” of items they know a fence will pay them for.<br><br>The suspects in this case are facing charges of Illegal Control of an Enterprise and Trafficking in Stolen Property.<br><br>“My hope is that this sends a strong message that we are committed to investigating and arresting individuals of all crimes, and theft of this magnitude will not be tolerated,” said Interim Police Chief Michael Sullivan.<br><br>These crimes are taken seriously by the department and the County Attorney’s Office.<br><br>“We need to pay particular attention to this kind of crime – especially when it’s at this scale – because it affects everyone’s bottom line,” said County Attorney Rachel Mitchell. “Retailers have to offset their losses which can mean those of us who are law-abiding citizens pay higher prices.”  <br><br>This is still an open investigation and details available for release are limited.  <br><br></p> </html></div>https://phoenix.gov/policeVideopolicePolice
Phoenix Police Unveils Newly Renovated Victim Centerhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/police/3076Police4/15/2024 7:30:00 PMhttps://youtu.be/nXBTOnrKQ2M?si=hNHOrmMnSYZUa-hIPhoenix Police Unveils Newly Renovated Victim Center<div class="ExternalClass998DE69D666F4803AC00AD9A9E79D05F"><html> <p>​After nearly four years, the newly renovated Victim Center was unveiled Thursday at the Phoenix Family Advocacy Center.<br></p> <p>The Victim Center is the home base of the Phoenix Police Department's Family Investigations Bureau where detectives, nurses and victim advocates investigate sexual and domestic violence cases as well as interview victims, some of whom may be reporting crimes for the first time. The center first opened in 1999 and last renovations happened more than 10 years ago.</p> <p>In collaboration with the Phoenix Police Foundation, the City of Phoenix was able to fund a significant renovation of the center through a public-private partnership.</p> <p>The new center now has private waiting rooms that can accommodate families and children, warmer interview rooms and enhanced privacy measures.</p> <p>"Anyone that comes through these doors is having a really terrible day," said Phoenix Police Commander Sara Garza, “so whatever we can do here to make sure that we're doing everything that we can to make it less terrible is our goal."</p> <p>In 2023, Phoenix PD received just under 34,000 calls for service involving domestic violence and investigated just over 800 sexual assault cases. For those victims, having a warm, comfortable and safe environment is crucial.</p> <p>"These victims had a very tiny waiting room, so they had no privacy," Garza said. “So, if you were reporting something and we had another victim waiting for, let's say, a nurse's exam or a detective interview, they might be sitting together, and victims always value privacy, especially during these sensitive investigations."</p> <p>“It's crucial for a victim to come into a space that is comfortable and a safe place," said Debbie Valenzuela, a victim advocate with the City of Phoenix Victim Services. “It's not just a big deal for us as advocates and detectives, but also the nurses. But it's big on the victims knowing that they are here in a nice, comfortable place, will welcome them when working with victims of sexual and domestic violence."</p> <p>The new design will provide a comfortable setting that respects the privacy and needs of victims during their most challenging times.</p> <p>"This is going to make an environment for somebody that's really having a horrible day into something that is a little bit more pleasant, allows the detectives to do their jobs, allows people to report their crimes and feel more comfortable doing so," said President of the Phoenix Police Foundation Tim Thomas.</p> <p>"I hope that all victims that come through the center leave with their dignity and their respect intact," said Garza, “that they have trust in the police and our victim advocates and the whole system, that we will give it the best chance towards justice for them and they leave as a whole person."<br></p> <p> <br> </p> </html></div>https://phoenix.gov/policeVideopolicePolice

Phoenix Scores $1.2 Million Transit Oriented Development Light Rail Grant https://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/public-transit/3074Public Transit4/12/2024 9:30:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/3074/Public_Transit_Newsroom_49.jpgPhoenix Scores $1.2 Million Transit Oriented Development Light Rail Grant <div class="ExternalClass8462171C179549C9BFD524A1AFFD2C54"><html> <p>The City of Phoenix received a $1.2 million <a href="https://www.transit.dot.gov/funding/grants/grant-programs/fiscal-year-2023-transit-oriented-development-tod-planning-projects" target="_blank">TOD (Transit Oriented Development) grant</a> from the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) to help with efforts to improve access to public transit and create a transit-oriented walkable, livable and sustainable community.<br></p> <p>These types of grants help organizations, like the City of Phoenix, plan with the community around major transportation projects to improve access to public transit and affordable housing. <br></p> <p>Accessible public transit is critical to the economic health and growth of our City’s communities. After the completion of the <a href="https://www.valleymetro.org/project/south-central-extension-downtown-hub" target="_blank">South Central Downtown Hub</a> light rail extension, scheduled for 2025, the existing light rail line - the Phoenix Light Rail Main Line -  will become a multi-line system with the downtown Phoenix area serving as the center for system transfers. The FTA awards this TOD grant for Phoenix’s Light Rail Main Line that includes the <a href="/pdd/reinvent-phx" target="_blank">Reinvent PHX</a>, <a href="/pdd/tod/19north" target="_blank">19North</a>, downtown Phoenix and the 50th Street station areas.<br></p> <p>Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego and Councilmembers expressed their support for the award: ​<br></p> <p>“Transit oriented development has been an inextricable part of our mission to build a Phoenix that works for everyone. This new grant will help us build a more dynamic city that seamlessly connects residents to work, the grocery store, to school or their doctor’s office—all without having to rely on a car. Together, we will continue working towards a more equitable city that prioritizes mixed-use projects,” said Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego. </p> <p>“This grant signifies continued progress for the City of Phoenix and for our residents,” said Phoenix Vice Mayor and Transportation, Infrastructure and Planning Subcommittee Chair Debra Stark. “Having access to a reliable and efficient transportation system helps strengthen our economy and revitalize our communities. This is a win-win not just for public transit accessibility but for all our community.”</p> <p> “We are excited to receive the Transit Oriented Development grant from the FTA,” said Councilwoman Ann O’Brien. “These funds are important to the City’s continued effort to create transit-oriented communities. FTA funds are currently helping build the Metro Transit Oriented District, which is part of the Northwest Extension Phase II project.” </p> <p> “The City of Phoenix has achieved a great milestone in receiving this FTA grant. This will help us reach our goals to support our communities and create access to affordable housing and mixed-use development opportunities,” said Councilwoman Laura Pastor. </p> <p> “With the newly awarded TOD grant, the City of Phoenix can continue its efforts to create strategies around transit oriented development and equitable communities – congratulations to all our teams for securing these funds,” said Councilwoman Kesha Hodge Washington.“ </p> <p>This marks the 5th Transit Oriented Development (TOD) grant awarded to Phoenix under the <a href="https://www.transit.dot.gov/TODPilot" target="_blank">Transit Oriented Development Planning program</a>. <br></p> <p>The TOD funds will be utilized with the following primary goals in mind:<br></p> <p>• Evaluate current and projected growth and development.</p> <p>• Assess affordable housing and development opportunities with emphasis on city-owned, vacant and large development sites.</p> <p>• Make recommendations to streamline permitting for rental housing and other community visions.</p> <p>• Educate and engage community stakeholders on the various transit-oriented development growth opportunities.<br></p> <p>Phoenix is one of 20 cities to receive a portion of the <a href="https://www.transit.dot.gov/TOD" target="_blank">$17.6 million awarded​</a> in 16 states.<br><br></p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/publictransitNewspublic-transitPublic Transit
Chief Sullivan Concerned Over Violent Attacks on Officershttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/police/3073Police4/11/2024 10:00:00 PMhttps://youtu.be/T0vHLX-IIMc?si=P0oPzMxHSDkHE_mSChief Sullivan Concerned Over Violent Attacks on Officers<div class="ExternalClassBD66F8E6A9C342A7BC0F094A83C31606"><html> ​Interim Phoenix Police Chief Michael Sullivan is concerned about the recent violent attacks against two Phoenix police officers that nearly cost them their lives.<br><br>Both unprovoked attacks took place within eight days of each other when officers were doing the job the community expects of them.<br><br>Chief Sullivan's concern is that if these attacks are perpetrated on uniformed police officers charged with keeping our community safe, what are these suspects willing to do to the general public?<br><br>“The frequency and seriousness of these attacks on the guardians of this community cause me great concern,” Chief Sullivan said. “And it should concern the public as well. This cannot become the norm.”<br><br>On Friday, March 29, 2024, Officer Harold Boswell was working off-duty security in full uniform when a woman ran up to him in the south Phoenix parking lot yelling for help. As the officer made his way toward the trouble, he was ambushed with a barrage of bullets. He was struck multiple times and, thankfully, his injuries were non-life threatening. He spent several days in the hospital and is now recovering at home.<br><br>On Sunday, April 7, 2024, another officer was responding to a trespassing call at a convenience store. As the officer was escorting the subject out of the store, the subject suddenly pulled out a large knife and stabbed the officer. A store security guard and clerk reacted immediately to assist the critically injured officer.<br><br>“If it were not for the intervention and incredible actions of the security guard and one of the clerks at the convenience store coming to the aid of our officer, we would have had a very different outcome,” said Chief Sullivan. “I want to personally thank them both.”<br><br>Sullivan fears that during these challenging times, incidents like these will be overlooked. He trusts that this community will not allow these behaviors to become the norm.<br><br>“These brave men and women put their lives on the line every day to protect and serve our city, and it is unacceptable that they should face such senseless violence,” Phoenix City District 1 Councilwoman Ann O’Brien said. “Attacks on law enforcement officers not only jeopardize public safety but also undermine the very fabric of our society.”<br><br>The Phoenix Police Department prides itself on having an excellent relationship with the community it serves. The department remains committed to reducing and preventing crime, maintaining public trust, and bringing justice to victims of crime.<br><br>The department held a news conference Thursday with Violent Crimes Bureau Lieutenant James Hester and PIO Sergeant Mayra Reeson.<br></html></div>https://phoenix.gov/policeVideopolicePolice
