The Glendora Police Department was recently awarded a traffic grant to be used for special enforcements and public awareness campaigns to prevent traffic-related deaths.
The Department received a $220,000 grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety to be used by Glendora PD’s Traffic Division as part of the city’s efforts to keep city streets safe through enforcement and education.
Operations to be performed with the grant include:
- Educational presentations
- DUI checkpoints
- DUI saturation patrols
- Distracted driving enforcement
- Seat belt and child safety seat enforcement
- Speed, red light, and stop sign enforcement
- Warrant service operations targeting multiple DUI offenders
- Compilation of DUI “Hot Sheets,” identifying worst-of-the-worst DUI offenders
- Specialized DUI and drugged driving training such as Standardized Field Sobriety Testing (SFST), and Advanced Roadside Impaired Driving Enforcement (ARIDE)
- Court “sting” operations to cite individuals driving from DUI court after ignoring their license suspension or revocation
- Stakeout operations to observe the “worst-of-the-worst” repeat DUI offender probationers with suspended or revoked driver licenses
“This grant will assist in our efforts with traffic safety in Glendora,” said Glendora Police Chief Tim Staab in a written statement. “It will also aid in reducing the number of persons killed and injured in preventable traffic collisions due to inattention and impaired driving.”
