Police receive grants for DUI enforcement, education, OT
Prescott Valley - The Police Department recently received three grants from the Governor's Office of Highway Safety totaling $49,894 that will be used for DUI enforcement, education, overtime, a laser radar unit and accident reconstruction software, Prescott Valley Police Officer Paul Dunn said.
On July 23, the Prescott Valley police learned from GOHS they would receive a $27,000 grant for DUI enforcement, education, and overtime.
Two days later, GOHS told Prescott Valley police they had received two more grants.
A $18,536 grant will be used for selective traffic enforcement, education, overtime, personnel services, and to buy a laser radar unit, Dunn said.
A $4,358 grant will be used for enforcement and to buy accident reconstruction software that works with the department's current accident investigation equipment, Dunn said.
The funding for these projects are mainly because of the continued efforts and passion of Alberto Gutier and the Governor's Office of Highway Safety to increase safety and equip law enforcement agencies with the tools to be successful, Dunn said.
