Bryan Police Department Awarded STEP Grant

By  | 

The Bryan Police Department applied for and received a Selective Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP) grant in the amount of $50,000 from the Texas Department of Transportation.

The Selective Traffic Enforcement Program is an enforcement effort targeting three driving behaviors that contribute greatly to the numbers and severity of traffic crashes:

-Occupant restraint
-Driving while intoxicated

The grant pays Officers overtime to specifically target these kinds of violations between October 1, 2012 and September 30, 2013. This program allows Bryan PD to put extra officers on the street in an attempt to reduce the number of traffic related accidents and severe injuries sustained during an accident.
