PHOENIX - Arizona law enforcement agencies are reacting to the Dallas ambush shooting in different ways.
Tracie Kittelson of the Tempe Police department said officers have "been given the opportunity to ride as two-person units if they choose."
The Arizona Department of Public Safety is not changing procedures after the ambush, in which five officers were killed and 14 people were shot.
Trooper Kameron Lee, public information officer for the Arizona Department of Public Safety, released the following statement:
"The Arizona Department of Public Safety is closely monitoring the horrific events in Dallas. When any event effects the community and law enforcement such as this, we look closely to determine if a change in patrols or procedures are needed to ensure the safety of our troopers and the public. At this time, we have not deemed it necessary to change or modify our processes or procedures. As information and facts are gleaned from this crime, we will evaluate it and ensure our policies and procedures protect our troopers and the public as much as possible. We want to express our deep care, love and concern for the families of those officers killed and injured in Dallas. We extend our support to the Dallas Police Department and the Dallas community."
Both Glendale and Mesa police departments declined to give specifics on procedure changes in the interest of officer safety.
