AN ANALYSIS OF HTE JUDICAIAL DISPOSITION OF ALCOHOL RELATED TRAFFIC ARRESTS -- 1972 ANALYTIC STUDY IV

Under the Alcohol Safety Action Project, the capabilities of the Phoenix Judicial System were expanded to handle the increased enforcement activity. The court functions as the vehicle which moves the convicted DWI into one or more rehabilitative processes. The Judicial Countermeasures area covers arraignment and prosecution. The Judicial Countermeasure contributed to the overall project objectives of reducing alcohol related accidents, injuries and fatalities. The most pressing problem in the judicial countermeasure is the backlog of DWI cases. In addition, there are increases in trails due to increases in not guilty pleas, reduction in convictions, increase in overtime or loss of effective patrol time for enforcement officers, increase in costs for processing DWI cases, increase of time between data of arrest and entry into the rehabilitative programs.
