Tucson Police's Operation Division South Motor Squad took a different and non-traditional approach to help raise awareness for safe driving on Thursday.

According to the department, mannequins were placed at different intersections around Tucson in an effort to lower collision statistics and urge drivers to pay better attention to their driving and what is around them. 

The mannequins were dressed like officers and placed in and around police vehicles near intersections that are or have been known for vehicle crashes.

This is the first time TPD has utilized this method by using mannequins.

Tucson Police said drivers can expect to see the mannequins out again Aug. 21 but the location has yet to be determined.
