Tucson radar van back on the street next week

The Tucson police photo radar van, its use suspended this week after a unit operator was killed in Phoenix, will be back in service next week, the Tucson Police Department announced Friday.

American Traffic Solutions pulled its Tucson van from operation after the Phoenix shooting to implement security measures. The new security – which police declined to identify – is in place and van patrols will resume Monday, a TPD news release read.

Thomas Patrick Destories, 68, faces charges of first-degree murder, drive-by shooting and firing a gun at a structure. Doug Georgianni, 51, was fatally shot Sunday as he operated a state photo radar van.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
