The Goodyear Police Department Traffic Unit recently received a $20,000 grant from the Oversight Council on Driving or Operating Under the Influence Abatement. The grant will be used for personnel service, including overtime.
“The goal of the traffic enforcement unit and the execution of this grant are to reduce the incidence of traffic fatalities and injuries as well as the high cost to residents resulting from DUI/Impaired Driving,” said a press release.
“This grant will allow Goodyear Police to conduct aggressive enforcement and attend DUI task forces.”
The grant went into effect Sept. 25, through the end of the year.
