Staff Reports Posted 20 November 2017 at 4:30 pm

Albion and Holley police departments both have been recognized by the American Automobile Association with 2017 Community Traffic Safety awards.

The Albion Police Department received the Platinum Award. The nationally recognized AAA Platinum Community Traffic Safety Award is the highest award AAA can bestow on any Police Department.

It’s awarded to departments that have developed and maintained traffic safety initiatives in their communities and who have shown success in those initiatives.

The Albion Police Department has used programs such as; Buckle Up New York, Selective Traffic Enforcement Program, Stop DWI, Pedestrian Crossing Safety and Awareness and the Child Passenger Safety Seat Program to enforce vehicle and traffic laws as well as to educate and assist motorist.

“Throughout 2017 the Albion Police Department conducted several targeted details that focused on specific areas of safety for both motorists and pedestrians,” Police Chief Roland Nenni said. “These details were done in non-traditional ways to increase their effectiveness. Several more details are planned using techniques that have never been done in our area and will increase awareness and effectiveness with the end goal of making our community safer.”

This is the seventh consecutive year that the Albion Police Department has received the Community Traffic Safety Platinum Award.

“The Albion Police Department is dedicated to making our highways and streets safer for all who use them,” Nenni said. “Throughout the holiday season we will continue our efforts by adding more patrols and details and we urge motorist to make responsible decisions.”

Nenni also leads the Holley Police Department, which was awarded the Bronze Award for the department’s efforts in traffic safety.
