The Town of Somers Police applied for and has been awarded the ARPA Rural Roads Speed Enforcement Grant with funding up to $50,000. This grant award will be utilized to fund overtime for a speed enforcement initiative to be conducted by officers within the Town of Somers Police Department. The enforcement will begin immediately. The Town of Somers has a fleet of both marked and unmarked vehicles with lasers and radars. With a direct correlation between speeding and accidents, this initiative will focus on specific areas of complaints in efforts to reduce traffic accidents and improve overall public safety. This grant will help our officers commit the time and effort necessary to enforce motor vehicle laws.
