As noted in a news release, the grant is part of a focused effort to increase safety on Nevada’s roads by increasing enforcement and awareness of traffic laws.
The goal, according to the release, is to reduce crashes and save lives by focusing on impaired and distracted drivers.
“Law enforcement personnel will continue to enforce traffic safety laws year-round as part of their commitment to reduce crashes and save lives,” the release noted.
“Thanks to this grant award, the Nevada Department of Public Safety, Highway Patrol Division will be able to team up with other area jurisdictions for a number of Joining Forces events from Oct. 1, 2021, through Sept. 30, 2022.”
