WPD Receives AAA Traffic Safety Grant

“WPD RECEIVES AAA TRAFFIC SAFETY GRANT TO PURCHASE NEW EQUIPMENT”

 April 11, 2017 – As part of its ongoing commitment to promoting traffic safety on the City’s roadways, Woodstock Police Department applied for the AAA Traffic Safety Grant for the purchase of two radar signs.  And, in February, Woodstock Police officials received notification that the department was selected as the recipient of the grant.

 The radar signs will be helpful in reducing speed in problem areas.  Woodstock police officials routinely monitor traffic statistics and traffic patterns within the City and deploy resources to areas of concern as necessary.  These radar signs are another resource to deter speeding and ensure motorist compliance with posted speed limits.

  “I am appreciative of AAA South for providing funding assistance for the acquisition of Radar Speed Signs through which we can jointly help improve roadway safety” says Calvin W. Moss, Chief of Police.

 The Auto Club Group (ACG) is the second largest AAA club in North America.  ACG and its affiliates provide membership, insurance, financial services and travel offerings to over 9 million members across eleven states and two U.S. territories including Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Michigan, Nebraska, North Dakota, Tennessee, Wisconsin, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands; most of Illinois and Minnesota; and a portion of Indiana.  ACG belongs to the national AAA federation with more than 57 million members in the United States and Canada and whose mission includes protecting and advancing freedom of mobility and improving traffic safety.

The Woodstock Police Department was presented with the grant before Mayor and Council at last night’s City Council meeting.
