by AZPSC News Feed
Changes have come to security at Hoover Dam, with National Park Service rangers taking over law enforcement duties from the now-defunct Bureau of Reclamation police department. “Since 1931 we have had a local police department that turned into the Hoover Dam Police Department,” said Terry Fulp, Lower Colorado Region director of the Bureau of Reclamation. “We’re the only office within the Bureau of Reclamation to do law enforcement.” One factor contributing to the decision was construction of the Mike O’Callahan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge, allowing traffic to bypass the dam. Prior to the bridge opening, all the vehicles traveling to and […]

by AZPSC News Feed
Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo, Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez and other law enforcement officers filed a brief in federal court Friday in support of a lawsuit that aims to keep Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals intact despite President Donald Trump’s intent to dismantle the program that protects young immigrants.

View from Mars Hill: Help us remember northern Arizona’s moon legacy | Local

by AZPSC News Feed
Nearly a half-century has passed since humans broke the shackles of Earth and journeyed to another world. Neil Armstrong took his “one small step” on the Moon on July 20, 1969, and 11 other “star voyagers” subsequently walked on and explored the lunar surface.

To that end, we are looking to gather stories from residents that will help in creating publications, programs, tours, and other commemorative […]
