DC Sheriff receives grant for radar units

The Dawson County Sheriff’s Office is being awarded a highway safety grant to assist in obtaining two mobile radar units.

“The Dawson County Sheriff’s Office has been awarded the funding to help prevent traffic crashes, injuries and fatalities at various locations throughout the area,” Nebraska Office of Highway Safety administer Fred Zwonechek said.

The mobile radar speed detection equipment provides the agency with a state-of-the-art system that will enhance speed control efforts. The Nebraska Office of Highway Safety has awarded $1,800 to the Dawson County Sheriff’s Office toward the purchase of the new units.

“They should be commended for taking advantage of this funding assistance to equip their patrol units with the tools necessary to assure safer streets for the residents and visitors to Dawson County,” Zwonechek said. “Utilizing this equipment has demonstrated proven success at reducing traffic crashes, injuries and fatalities within the communities.”
