WEST CHESTER, Ohio (WXIX) - The West Chester Police Department has received more than $6,000 for 100 hours of traffic enforcement.

“Traffic safety is a priority all year long, but during the summer months when there are more celebrations and more people on the road this grant comes at a perfect time, said Police Chief Joel Herzog.

The grant program allows for enforcement time for at least one summertime event and covers the following time periods:

  • Distracted driving month: April 1 - April 30
  • Annual Click It or Ticket blitz: May 23 - June 5
  • Independence day holiday: July 1 - July 5
  • Annual Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign: Aug. 19 - Sept. 5

The grant was awarded by the Ohio Traffic Safety Office which administers federal funds for various highway safety programs.
