On Monday, Sept. 18, the Tennessee Highway Safety Office announced that $15,000 in federal grant funds will be awarded to the Red Bank Police Department for the 2017-2018 Federal Fiscal Year. Approximately 400 grants exceeding $18 million will be distributed statewide from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration through the THSO to support local highway safety initiatives.
