EPD Receives Traffic Grant
The Euclid Police Department has been awarded a grant from the Ohio Traffic Safety Office that provides 420 hours of impaired driving enforcement and 280 hours of selective traffic enforcement. The goal for implementing these two programs is to reduce traffic fatalities from impaired driving, speeding, and unrestrained vehicle passengers. This grant allows Euclid Police additional officers to enforce traffic safety violations during peak accident times such as News Year’s Eve, Super Bowl, St. Patrick’s Day, and prom season. This federal grant program provides federal funds administered through the Ohio Department of Public Safety (ODPS), Ohio Highway Patrol (OSHP)/Ohio Traffic Safety Office (OTSO) to be used for traffic safety education, enforcement, and awareness.
I am the Community Policing Specialist at the Euclid Police Department.
