STONINGTON — Beginning today, the Stonington Police Department will have additional patrols monitoring the speed of motorists throughout the town.
Crews will be stationed in various locations at various times until Sept. 30, according to a department press release signed by Sgt. Keith Beebe, grant projects director.
The cost of the additional patrols will be reimbursed through a grant from the federal High Risk Rural Roads Speed Enforcement Program, which was awarded to the police department by the Connecticut Department of Transportation.
“The objective of this speed enforcement grant program is to reduce the number of crashes, injuries and fatalities from speed through increased, high-visibility speed enforcement activity,” according to the press release.
