• Berlin police win safety award
     | August 08,2014

    BERLIN — The Berlin Police Department has received an award from the Governor’s Highway Safety Program for the Vermont Law Enforcement Challenge.

    The department received a second-place distinction and was awarded a cruiser radar system worth $2,000.

    The Vermont Law Enforcement Challenge is a program that evaluates a department’s efforts toward promoting highway safety. The Governor’s Highway Safety Program judges the applications, evaluating departments in seven categories.

    Some efforts that brought the award include the department’s participation with child safety seat inspections and training, as well as participation in Governor’s Highway Safety Program mobilizations such as “Click It or Ticket” and “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” — both high-visibility traffic enforcement campaigns.

    The challenge is based on the National Law Enforcement Challenge, partly funded by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
