Press Release, Albion Police Chief Roland D. Nenni III
ALBION – The Albion Police Department will be participating in the “Buckle Up New York Campaign” from May 21 to June 3. The Police Department was awarded a $5,984 grant from the New York State Governors Traffic Safety Committee to participate in this statewide initiative.
The Albion Police Department will have extra police officers on duty during this 14-day enforcement wave. These officers will be conducting road checks and patrolling throughout the village to ensure seatbelt compliance.
The main factors that cause fatalities in motor vehicle accidents continues to be speeding, not wearing seatbelts and driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs. The safety of our streets continues to be one of the number one goals of the Albion Police Department. We will continue to strive to make our community safe.
Over the past several years year the Albion Police Department has worked hard to ensure the safety of motorists and pedestrians. Using details such as pedestrian crosswalk operations, DWI check points and other focused patrols, we have taken several dangerous motorists off our roadways and also prevented countless injuries and deaths through our seat belt enforcement efforts.
The Albion Police Department is proud to have won the Automobile Association of America’s Community Traffic Safety Platinum Award for the past three consecutive years. This award shows the commitment and dedication the officers of the Albion Police Department have for the safety of our motorists and pedestrians.
