The Polk County Police Department is pleased to announce it has received a $25,000 from the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety (GOHS). The grant, which will continue through September of 2021, will help finance new laptop computers for police cars.
“The loss of one life on our roads is one to many, and the fact almost all fatal traffic crashes can be prevented is one reason why were a awarding this grant,” Allen Poole, Director of Governor’s Office of Highway Safety said. “The target of zero traffic deaths in our nation is achievable, and we will continue to help develop and implement educational messages, enforcement campaigns, and other safety initiatives aimed at bringing us one step closer to our goal.”
The Polk County Police Department is very appreciative of the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety’s support of local efforts to reduce fatal crashes. The grant money has a huge impact on our agencies ability to use technology as a tool to reduce fatal crashes. The department would also like to thank Polk County Police Officer Andy Anderson for heading up the GOHS campaign for our department and making us eligible to receive these grant funds.
