The Arizona Department of Public Safety celebrated 50 years of vigilance in 2019. The Digest, an internal publication of AZDPS, has been in circulation for over 60 years, highlighting stories of employees and the Department. To honor the past, a Digest has been published to remember achievements and changes AZDPS has experienced the last 50 years. Take a ride with us, “Down the Highways”, as we celebrate!
The following stories are excerpts directly taken from a Digest publication in that respective year with some years omitted. Over the last 50 years, there have been many agency changing events but there have also been lull years, which is common for any large organizations, especially governmental.
