Sheriff's Deputies Vigilant During 100 Days And Nights Of Summer ( All Day )
SHERIFF’S DEPUTIES VIGILANT DURING 100 DAYS AND NIGHTS OF SUMMER

Doña Ana County Sheriff’s deputies will join 65 other agencies throughout New Mexico in the annual 100 Days and Nights of Summer public safety campaign beginning July 1, 2014.

The initiative, grant-funded by the New Mexico Department of Transportation Traffic Safety Division, provides overtime pay for saturation patrols, checkpoints and added enforcement during a 100-day period from June through September. Doña Ana County Sheriff’s deputies will step enforcement in all areas of the county, with specific patrols scheduled in conjunction with other law-enforcement agencies.

The sheriff’s office kicks off its involvement on July 1 to coincide with the beginning of the fiscal year.

Summer months typically see an increase of highway traffic due to summer vacations and holidays that fall within the warmer months, like 4th of July and Labor Day.

Law enforcement reminds all motorists that the most critical things you can do to prevent injury and enhance safety when you are in a vehicle are the most simple: wear your seatbelt, always drive at the posted speed limit and pay attention to the road.

The 100 Days and Nights of Summer campaign runs through Sept. 30.

WARNING: Daytime Temperature Can Be Hazardous For People, Pets ( All Day )
Daytime Temperatures Can Be Hazardous for People, Pets

The Las Cruces Police Department is reminding motorists that rising daytime temperatures can cause death or serious injury to pets or people left in an enclosed vehicle.

Research shows that the interior temperature of an enclosed vehicle can rise 19 degrees Fahrenheit after only 10 minutes in the sun, 34 degrees after 30 minutes, and 45-50 degrees in about one hour. The rapidly increasing interior temperature of a vehicle can cause injury to people and pets, even when outdoor daytime temperatures are in the 80s or low 90s.

And studies show the practice of leaving a vehicle window partially open, or “cracked,” is of little or no help in decreasing the interior temperature.

People can succumb to heatstroke when the core body temperature reaches 104 F and a body temperature of 107 F is considered lethal.

The Las Cruces Police Department offers these safety tips.

• Drink sufficient amounts of water when working or playing outdoors.
• Wear protective (hat, light-colored, vented or UPF-rated) clothing outdoors.
• Limit the amount of time you spend in direct sunlight.
• Do not leave pets or people (sleeping babies, children, elderly) in a vehicle – even with the windows “cracked” or down.
• Place a purse or wallet in the back seat as a reminder that you have your child in the car.
• Always lock your car when unattended and teach children that vehicles are never to be used as play areas.
• Provide proper shade and fresh water for pets.
• Avoid overexertion of dogs such as walking/jogging them during the heat of the day.
• Do not leave pets in the bed of a pickup as surface temperatures can rise quickly.
• Don’t let breezes or windy weather fool you. The lack of circulation inside an enclosed vehicle on a warm day, even with windows “cracked,” can be deadly.
• Call 911 if you see a person or pet left unattended in an enclosed vehicle.
• Seek immediate medical attention for people or pets who have succumb to the heat.
