Bull Valley Police win Traffic Safety Challenge

BULL VALLEY – The Bull Valley Police Department won an Illinois Traffic Safety Challenge award program to reduce traffic crashes and injuries.

The Police Department took third place in its category, one to 10 full-time sworn officers. The challenge recognizes the best overall traffic safety programs in the state.

For its application, the department documented traffic safety efforts throughout the 2013 calendar year. It was judged by members of law enforcement, public safety and corporate partners.

According to the department, winning programs of the competitive challenge combine many different traffic safety strategies to reduce crashes and injuries in their jurisdiction. Winners are awarded police equipment.

The Bull Valley Police Department will be recognized at a luncheon on Aug. 20.
