The safety of everyone traveling is the focus of a grant awarded to the Menlo Park Police Department. The $91,700 grant from California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) will assist in Menlo Park’s efforts to reduce deaths and injuries on San Mateo County roads.
“These are trying times, and now more than ever, it is important that we are at the forefront of traffic safety,” Menlo Park Police Chief David Spiller said. “This funding allows us to educate and enhance the safety of all residents.”
The one-year grant is for the 2021 federal fiscal year, which runs from Oct. 1, 2020 to Sept. 30, 2021.
The grant will fund a variety of traffic safety programs, including:
“Through education and behavior changes, we hope to create an environment that is safe and equitable for all road users in our community,” Chief Spiller said.
Funding for this program was provided by a grant from California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
