PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) - Prescott police say they're thankfully accepting help from other Arizona law enforcement agencies as they cope with extra work stemming from the June 30 deaths of 19 members of a Prescott-based Hotshots firefighting crew.

Prescott Police Chief Jerald Monahan says his department's personnel have been stretched thin by the tragedy of the Yarnell fire as well as July 4 activities.

According to Monahan, many Prescott police officers and other employees have worked through their scheduled time off.

He says agencies helping include the state Department of Public Safety, the Northern Arizona University Police Department and numerous police departments from the Phoenix area.

The other agencies mostly have sent teams of 2 to four officers. They've been providing security at locations and events and responding to calls for service in Prescott.
