Gilbert is a community of approximately 200,000 people, and it is generally known to be a safe and stable place. The population of the area is relatively young, the median income is well above the Arizona average and the average education level is high. While there have been many theories put forward with regards to why the crime rate is lower than the American average, one line of thinking involves the high number of law enforcement personnel in the community. According to government data, there are only 1.04 police officers per 1,000 residents here, which is much lower than the Arizona average that currently sits at 1.97.
As such, enforcement of criminal laws in Gilbert is very aggressive. More than 320 law enforcement personnel, more than 200 of which are sworn police officers, are constantly on the lookout for suspicious behavior. This leads to a high number of arrests and to many cases being sent to the Maricopa County District Attorney’s Office. People who face investigation or prosecution for DUI or other crimes need to understand this reality so that they immediately take steps to protect their Constitutional rights if they find themselves under scrutiny.
While the law enforcement community in Gilbert is relatively large, the penalties for conviction of any crime in Arizona are notoriously tough. Jail and prison time are common results of convictions, and people need to do everything in their power to make sure that all of their Constitutional rights are properly protected and enforced.
If you or someone you love has been arrested on suspicion of DUI or you have recently been made aware of the fact that you are being investigated for some other crime, you need to push back your fear and stress and take action. You need to obtain legal representation from a Gilbert Criminal Defense Lawyer who understands how these cases work, who has earned a track record of positive results and who has a strong reputation within the legal community.
