Pursuant to legislation adopted in 1968, the Arizona Department of Public Safety was established by executive order of the governor on July 1, 1969. The mandate consolidated the functions and responsibilities of the Arizona Highway Patrol, the Enforcement Division of the Department of Liquor Licenses and Control, and the Narcotics Division of the Arizona Department of Law. Many responsibilities have been added in the ensuing years, and today's Department of Public Safety is a multifaceted organization. The Office of the Director establishes the Department's goals, policies, procedures, and organizational structure. This Annual Report profiles the office's operations and programs. Statistical charts and tables relevant to the Office's operations are also provided. The Criminal Investigation Bureau enforces criminal statutes, deters criminal activity, and assists other public safety agencies. These efforts encompass narcotics, organized crime/narcotics, organized crime/racketeering, liquor laws, and criminal intelligence. Investigative and specialized services also are provided to local, county, State, and Federal criminal justice agencies. In addition to describing the 1995-96 activities of the Criminal Investigation Bureau, statistical charts and tables relevant to the Bureau's activities are presented. Data and information are also provided on the activities of the Highway Patrol Bureau, which is responsible for providing a safe environment for the public on Arizona's highways, interdicting criminal activity, supporting other criminal justice agencies, and responding to civil emergencies. The Support Division consists of the Agency Support Bureau and the Criminal Justice Support Bureau. The activities of these bureaus are described as well. This Annual Report also provides information on employee recognition awards, department awards, employee retirements, and officers killed in the line of duty.
