The Ohio Department of Public Safety's (ODPS) Office of Criminal Justice Services (OCJS) has awarded $36,109 in federal traffic safety funding to the Norwalk Police Department for federal fiscal year 2013. The funds have been awarded in the form of the High Visibility Enforcement Overtime (HVEO) grant. This grant is awarded based upon serious injury and fatal crash data for the previous three years. The grant period begins Oct. 1, 2012, and ends Sept. 30, 2013.

These funds will be used to provide additional patrols in an effort to prevent serious injury crashes and make our roadways safer. Based on the crash data, enforcement will be targeted on violations contributing to serious injury crashes, including driving while impaired, speeding, aggressive driving, distracted driving and seatbelt usage.

Using these funds will allow the Norwalk police department to join law enforcement agencies throughout the state and county to participate in enforcement blitzes, including the "Click It or Ticket" and "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" campaigns. Additional traffic enforcement patrols will be conducted throughout the year based upon local crash problem identification.

These funds are passed through OCJS from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to support the efforts of safety partners statewide and focus on traffic safety priority areas, such as restraint use, impaired driving and speed enforcement.

Wow! How did you do those cool hammer and sickle things? Can you do swastikas?


Just wondering did GIMME DANE MORE $$ apply for this money, and get some more added to his over 4 Million Dollar Budget!!! Maybe it would buy new cruisers, 911 system, and more K-9 and deputies!


Instead of always acting like a little girl on here, if you have such a problem with him, call him up and set up a meeting. Sitting behind a computer taking pot shots = such a real man.


Dane Howard isn't even in the NPD. I don't understand why people are so against him. He's trying to do his job, but he needs equipment to be able to do it. He's trying to protect US, and people get mad about that?

the druggys want him out

hit the road jack

Just more money to the locals to pull you over if your out driving during their blitz's,get ready people,big bro is going to be watching you but only if you have a job will they do anything to you and then it will be to just empty your pockets.


Police are already on patrol, they need $36,109 for "special" patrols? What are "Special Patrols"? Do they sit in one spot longer and eat fresher dounuts? Speeding is NOT a problem in Norwalk, people drive 5-10 mph UNDER the speed limit, I wish they would speed!
