CVPD gets $13,000 from state
CHINO VALLEY - The Governor's Office of Highway Safety has awarded the Chino Valley Police Department two grants totaling $13,000, CVPD spokesman Lt. Vince Schaan said.
One grant is for $5,000 and will pay for high-visibility impaired driver DUI enforcement. It will be used for overtime pay and other employee-related expenses to staff high-visibility patrols and DUI task force events.
The other grant is for $8,000 for the Selective Traffic Enforcement Program.
"The funds will cover overtime pay and employee related expenses to staff officers to conduct traffic enforcement in neighborhoods, school zones and construction zones throughout the Chino Valley area," Schaan said.
CVPD is asking the public to contact them to report areas they feel traffic violations are occurring and need additional enforcement. Contact 928-636-4223 and give police the area of concern, the time the issues are occurring and any vehicle information available.
