County Attorney’s Office Wants Residents To Be Safe in 2020

Phoenix, Arizona – As we say farewell to 2019 and ring in a new decade, the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office (MCAO) offers some simple New Year’s Resolutions to help residents be safe in 2020.

“Keeping families safe means not only holding criminals accountable but providing critical education and resources so that the residents of Maricopa County can prevent crime from happening,” states County Attorney Adel. “ I encourage all residents to do three simple things in 2020 - take steps to protect your identity, safely discard prescription medication from your home and never drive while impaired. These steps can make a real difference and prevent crimes from occurring.”

MCAO will host two free “Shred-A-Thon” and “Drug Take-Back” events so that residents may safely destroy documents that contain personal information, as well as dispose of unused prescription and over-the-counter medication:

  • Saturday, Jan. 11 from 7 to 10 am at Surprise Police Department, 14250 W. Statler Plaza, Surprise, AZ 85374
  • Saturday, Feb. 15 from 7 to 10 am at Chandler Target, 3425 W. Frye Road, Chandler, AZ 85226

MCAO has also partnered with Lyft to provide riders with discounted rides through Jan. 1, 2020. First-time users who download the Lyft app can get $5 off four rides by entering the promo code JOY. Those who already have the Lyft app can enter the code JOY19 to receive 20% off two rides.
