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/parksNews
​ City Exhibit Takes Aim at Sexual Assault Victim “Shaming" and “Blaming"https://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/police/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/policeVideo
