Riverside County Sheriff’s Southwest Station receives grant from Office of Traffic Safety

The Riverside County Sheriff’s Southwest Station received a $108,693 grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety to assist in the Southwest Station’s efforts to reduce deaths and injuries on city roads. The one-year grant is for the 2021 federal fiscal year, which runs from October 1, 2020, to September 30, 2021.

“These are trying times, and now more than ever, it is important that we are at the forefront of traffic safety,” said Sergeant Woods. “This funding allows us to educate and enhance the safety of all residents.”

The grant will fund a variety of traffic safety programs, including patrols with emphasis on alcohol and drug-impaired driving prevention, awareness and education of California’s hands-free cell phone law, education of traffic rights for bicyclists and pedestrians, and awareness and education of primary causes of crashes: excess speed, failure to yield, failure to stop at stop signs and signals, and improper turning and lane changes.

The Southwest Station services the contract city of Temecula and the De Luz Community Services District, as well as other unincorporated communities. Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
