Jackson Police receives Crash Reduction Enforcement Grant.

PRESS RELEASE

Date: 27 November 2018

RE: Crash Reduction Enforcement Grant (CRE)

From: Captain Ronald Adams

In a cooperative effort to reduce the number and severity of traffic accidents, the Tennessee Highway Safety Office has awarded the Jackson Police Department a $50,000 grant that will pay overtime for officers to conduct traffic enforcement.  During the enforcement activities officers will focus their efforts on dangerous violations such as speeding, following too close, negligent driving, and distracted driving.  Due to the fact nonuse of safety belts and child safety seats contribute to unnecessary injuries and fatalities, the enforcement of vehicle occupant protection statutes will be vigorous. As always impaired driving will be an area of concern, therefore CRE team members will be conducting DUI Saturations and Sobriety Checkpoints as well.  

 

CRE operations will begin immediately and continue through 30 September 2019.
