AAA Awards Collegedale Police With Traffic Safety Grant

  • Thursday, March 23, 2023
The Collegedale Police Department was presented with the 2022 AAA Traffic Safety Grant Award last Wednesday. 

The $11,000 grant funded the purchase of several Preliminary Breath Tests, or PBTs, to assist officers with DUI investigations and sobriety checkpoints.

"DUI detection and keeping the roads safe from intoxicated drivers is a top priority of the department," officials said. "PBTs will provide officers the ability to more accurately determine the potential impairment of drivers suspected of being intoxicated."

“I am grateful that our agency was selected to receive grant funding from the AAA Auto Club Group to purchase the PBTs,” said Chief Jack Sapp.
“This technology provides our officers a tool to assist them as they investigate the potential presence of intoxicated drivers on our roadways.”
