Extra patrols will join on-duty personnel in looking for those who endanger the public through distracted and impaired driving. This campaign is funded by a federal grant administered through the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security’s Highway Safety Division (EOPSS/HSD) from the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA).
