Murrieta, Calif. – The safety of everyone traveling is the focus of a grant awarded to the Murrieta Police Department. The $94,000 grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) will assist in Murrieta Police Department’s efforts to reduce deaths and injuries on Murrieta roads.
“Each year families are torn apart by deaths and injuries from preventable traffic collisions. Sadly, alcohol and drug-impaired driving, distracted driving due to cellular phones use, and reckless driving habits, continue to be leading factors in traffic collisions,” Murrieta Police Chief Sean Hadden said. “This funding allows us to enhance the safety of all Murrieta residents.”
