Riverside County Sheriff's, Moreno Valley Station Receives $159,707 Grant from the Office of Traffic Safety                                               

City of Moreno Valley, California. – The safety of everyone traveling our roadways is the focus of a grant awarded to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, Moreno Valley Station.  The $159,707 grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) will assist in efforts to reduce deaths and injuries on the City of Moreno Valley roads.

“These are trying times, and now more than ever, it is important that we are at the forefront of traffic safety,” Captain John Salisbury said. “This funding allows us to educate and enhance the safety of all residents.”

The one-year grant is for the 2021 federal fiscal year, which runs from Oct. 1, 2020 to Sept. 30, 2021.

The grant will fund a variety of traffic safety programs, including:

  • Patrols with emphasis on alcohol and drug-impaired driving prevention.
  • Patrols with emphasis on awareness and education of California’s hands-free cell phone law.
  • Patrols with emphasis on education of traffic rights for bicyclists and pedestrians.
  • Patrols with emphasis on awareness and education of primary causes of crashes: excess speed, failure to yield, failure to stop at stop signs/signals, improper turning/lane changes.
  • Community education presentations on traffic safety issues such as distracted driving, Driving Under the Influence (DUI), speed, bicycle and pedestrian safety.
  • Collaborative efforts with neighboring agencies on traffic safety priorities.
  • Officer training and/or recertification: Standard Field Sobriety Test (SFST), Advanced Roadside Impaired Driving Enforcement (ARIDE) and Drug Recognition Expert (DRE).

“Through education and changes in behavior, we hope to create an environment that is safe and equitable for all road users in our community,” Captain John Salisbury said.

Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
