Viewer discretion is advised.</strong> <br> <br>The Phoenix Police Department released a Critical Incident Briefing (CIB) video that includes audio, visuals and information related to an officer-involved shooting (OIS) which occurred on December 28, 2020, at approximately 12:15 a.m. in the area of 27th Avenue and Indian School Road.<br><br>Phoenix Police Patrol Officers were in the area of 27th Avenue and Indian School Road on an unrelated traffic stop when they heard shots fired just north of their location.<br><br>Officers left the traffic stop and drove to the area where the shots were heard. A female officer was flagged down in the parking lot of a strip mall near Indian School Road and 27th Avenue by a woman later identified as 47-year-old, Helen Jones.<br><br>Jones told the officer that someone was trying to get into her truck.<br><br>The officer asked Jones if she had any weapons and told her to lift her shirt and show her waistband. Jones denied having any weapons but refused to show the right-side hip area where she appeared to be concealing a gun. The officer began giving verbal commands to Jones.<br><br>The officer requested additional units to her location and advised them the woman appeared to be armed and may have been involved in the shots fired. Additional officers arrived and communicated with Jones for approximately 13 minutes.<br><br>Jones ignored officer’s direction and turned towards officers, pointing a gun at them. Two officers fired at Jones striking her. A third officer also deployed less lethal munition from a stunbag.<br><br>Officers provided first-aid until the Phoenix Fire Department arrived on scene. Jones was transported to the hospital where she was pronounced deceased.<br><br>The weapon used by Jones was recovered at the scene.<br><br>The officers involved are assigned to the Maryvale Estrella Mountain Precinct. One officer is 24 years old with 3 years of service and the second officer is 26 years old with 4 years of service.<br><br>There were no injuries to officers or other community members.<br><br>Conclusions about whether the actions of the officers are consistent with department policy and the law will not be made until all facts are known and the investigation is complete. An internal investigation by the Professional Standard Bureau is currently underway, in addition to a criminal investigation. Once the criminal investigation is complete it will then be reviewed by the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office.<br><br>Public records law required redaction of certain personal identifying information before video is released publicly. This is why you may see some parts of Body Worn Camera (BWC) blurred or covered with a black box. Redacted video is released to local media in conjunction with the release of this Critical Incident Briefing for independent review and publication. Complete, unedited versions of the BWC are released to attorneys and the courts as evidence in a criminal case.<br></html></div>https://phoenix.gov/policeVideopolicePolice@phoenixpolicePolice Main PIOphoenixpd.pio@phoenix.govhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/MediaContact/Attachments/36/Police2.pngPhoenixPolice

Second Annual Stormwater Awareness Week Jan. 25 -31, 2021https://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/water-services/1714Water Services1/20/2021 4:00:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/1714/newsroom_water_045.jpgSecond Annual Stormwater Awareness Week Jan. 25 -31, 2021<div class="ExternalClass4CF1F73555D345BF97EA2D56CAFF3E9D"><html> <p>Phoenix Water Services is kicking off 2021 with a focus on stormwater pollution prevention. The utility's second annual Stormwater Awareness Week is set for January 25 – 31, 2021. A <a href="https://phoenixpublicmeetings.webex.com/mw3300/mywebex/default.do?siteurl=phoenixpublicmeetings&service=6" target="_blank">virtual workshop</a> is scheduled for Thursday, January 28 at noon to help spread awareness on the importance of stormwater pollution prevention. </p> <p>A number of Arizona cities and organizations will join Phoenix for this regional effort to educate the public about the importance of preserving stormwater quality for the environment and future generations.</p> <p>"Stormwater Awareness Week encourages communities to make smart choices when it comes to preserving the quality of stormwater in our desert city," said Mayor Gallego. “With our hotter than normal summers and the lack of rain, it is important to remember that stormwater doesn't get treated and flows directly to nearby washes and retention basins, making it imperative that we preserve our systems."</p> <p>Stormwater picks up pollutants as it flows over rooftops, gutters, parking lots, driveways, and other paved surfaces. That polluted stormwater can work its way into storm drains, and eventually to surface water and retention areas.</p> <p>Simple actions to reduce stormwater pollution include:</p> <ul> <li>Disposing trash, recyclables and chemicals properly like detergent, paint, medications, etc.</li> <li>Recycling motor oil and maintaining your vehicle to prevent leaks</li> <li>Cleaning up after your pet</li> <li>Using lawn-chemicals sparingly and always following manufacturer's directions</li> <li>Properly disposing leftover paint and household chemicals at a household hazardous waste event</li> <li>And please remember - only rain in the storm drain</li> </ul> <p>"Stormwater Awareness Week highlights issues about stormwater pollution that we don't often think about," said Interim Water Services Director Eric Froberg. “Everyone has an important role in stormwater pollution prevention. Having the opportunity to host a virtual workshop for our residents will go a long way to help educate our community." </p> <p>Phoenix Water Services is hosting a virtual workshop on Thursday, January 28 at noon. to discuss the City's Stormwater Management Program and our activities to reduce stormwater pollution. Please register <a href="https://phoenixpublicmeetings.webex.com/mw3300/mywebex/default.do?siteurl=phoenixpublicmeetings&service=6" target="_blank">here</a> to participate. </p> <p>To learn more about the City of Phoenix Water Services Department Stormwater Awareness Week and what you can do as an individual or business to prevent stormwater pollution, please visit <a href="/waterservices/envservices/stormwater-program" target="_blank">phoenix.gov/stormwater</a>.​​​<br></p> <p><br></p><p><strong>Media Contact: </strong></p><p>Victoria Welch</p><p>Public Information Specialist </p><p>602-262-5060<br></p><br></html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/waterservicesNews
