The chief of the Casa Grande Police Department (CGPD) in Arizona has decided to send his patrol officers back to driving school following a series of minor accidents involving the agency’s vehicles. Nine CGPD vehicles have been involved in accidents since April, reports PinalCentral.com, compared to five such accidents in all of 2016.
