State’s Office of Traffic Safety awards two grants to SHPD

The California Office of Traffic Safety has awarded the Signal Hill Police Department (SHPD) a $31,037 traffic-safety grant for an anti-DUI program and a $75,400 grant for a year-long program aimed at preventing deaths and injuries on roadways through special-enforcement and public-awareness efforts.
“When you see an impaired driver enter a checkpoint with alcohol hidden in a child restraint seat occupied by a child, you realize we still have a lot of work to do dealing with the problem of DUI and drugged drivers.,” said SHPD Police Chief Michael Langston. “We appreciate the State’s support of our efforts to combat this problem.”
The grants’ activities will specifically target impaired-driving offenders as well as be used to educate the public on the dangers of impaired driving, according to a press release issued by the SHPD.
