Viewer discretion is advised.</strong> <br> <br>The Phoenix Police Department has released a Critical Incident Briefing (CIB) video that includes audio, visuals and information related to an officer-involved shooting (OIS) which occurred on April 24th, 2023.</p> <p>This incident occurred in the area of 33rd Avenue and Bell Road when Phoenix Police received a call about a man attempting to steal an item at a business. While the caller was on the phone with dispatchers, the man assaulted the caller. </p> <p>Later in the 911 call, the caller stated that the man was leaving the area.</p> <p>A number of officers and a sergeant were dispatched to the call. The sergeant located a man matching the description given, riding a bicycle in the area of 31st Avenue and Bell Road. The sergeant gave commands to the man to stop riding his bike, the man refused the commands and rode his bike into an apartment complex near 33rd Avenue and Bell Road. The sergeant lost site of the man at this point.  </p> <p>The sergeant drove to the apartment complex and got out of his patrol car to search the complex on foot. While inside the complex, he saw the man and order him to stop. The man refused the command and took off running. The sergeant, and ultimately another officer on scene, ran after the man. </p> <p>During the foot chase the sergeant noticed the man had a knife in his hand and the sergeant gave multiple commands to drop the knife. The subject turned around facing the sergeant and the officer. He was again given commands to drop the knife, but he did not and instead charged at the sergeant with the knife still in his hand. </p> <p>The sergeant fired his firearm multiple times and the officer discharged his taser. The man was struck with gunfire and fell to the ground. </p> <p>Officers provided medical aid to the man until the Phoenix Fire Department arrived on scene. The man was taken to the hospital where he was treated for his injuries.  </p> <p>The knife that man had during the incident was found on scene.</p> <p>The sergeant involved in this incident is assigned to the Cactus Park Precinct and has approximately 24 1/2 years of service with the department.</p> <p>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.</p> <p>Public records law required redaction of certain personal identifying information before video is released publicly. That 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></p> </html></div>https://phoenix.gov/policeVideopolicePolicePolice Main PIOphoenixpd.pio@phoenix.govhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/MediaContact/Attachments/36/Police2.pngPhoenixPolice

Drought Pipeline Project Construction and Testing Completedhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/water-services/2871Water Services9/26/2023 11:24:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/2871/Drought_Pipeline_Proj.jpgDrought Pipeline Project Construction and Testing Completed<div class="ExternalClassFB7720D94B6944CB857425DA83771E56"><html> <div>​The Drought Pipeline is now ready for service, bolstering our city’s resilience to drought. Construction and restoration for the<strong> </strong><a target="_blank" href="/waterservices/dpp"><strong>Drought Pipeline Project</strong></a>, a complex and intricate system of pumps and waterlines, was completed in August 2023. The new nine-mile concrete and steel pipeline, which is now in service, can move 75 million gallons of water daily to North Phoenix. The final segment of pipe was installed at N 32nd Street & E Shea Boulevard in<strong> </strong><a target="_blank" href="https://youtu.be/QcOYaZEFNy0?si=wOPraOiKdNruIXrg"><strong>January 2023</strong></a>, and the pipeline had been undergoing testing since March 2023 to ensure seamless operation. <br></div> <div> <br> </div> <div>"The completion of the Drought Pipeline Project is a significant milestone for our community, providing assurance for residents and businesses in the northern part of our city and reducing our dependence on the Colorado River," Mayor Gallego said. “We will continue to build upon our legacy of wise water stewardship to ensure a more sustainable future."</div> <div> <br> </div> <div>The $280 million project will give Phoenix the capability to move Salt and Verde River water to parts of the city where 400,000 people have relied on Colorado River water. The new infrastructure will be critical as drought, climate change, and increased demand lead to more shortages on the Colorado River.</div> <div> <br> </div> <div>"This project would not have been possible without the support and cooperation of our partners. We are grateful for their help in making this a reality," said Phoenix Water Services Director Troy Hayes. "This is a critical project, and we want to thank our community for their patience and understanding as we put this critical infrastructure into the ground."</div> <div> <br> </div> <div>The completion of the Drought Pipeline Project is the result of years of planning and collaboration among various stakeholders. Funding came from revenue generated by the 2019/2020 Phoenix City Council approved water rate increase.
