El Monte Police Receive $150,000 Traffic Safety Grant
According to public officials, the state's Office of Traffic Safety has awarded a $150,000 grant to the El Monte Police Department aimed at improving enforcement procedures.
El Monte police chief David Reynoso said impaired driving, speeding, and other dangerous driving behaviors endanger other people on the road.
Using this money, we can implement proper traffic enforcement measures in order to reduce the number of serious injuries and fatal crashes on our roads. Educating El Monte residents and enhancing their safety will be achieved by this project.
In addition to the additional enforcement measures, the grant will support bicycle and pedestrian safety programs, as well as warrant service operations targeting multiple DUI offenders who do not appear in court. In addition to the grant program, the grant will support other roadway safety initiatives.
The California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, provided funding for the program.
