Summary:

In August of 2018, the Olathe Police Department Traffic Unit submitted an application for the 2018 AAA Community Traffic Safety Awards Program.  Awards are presented to communities for their efforts to improve local traffic safety for the year.  Points are earned for participation in different traffic safety programs to include, a Traffic Safety Committee, Safe Routes to Schools, “Four E” Programs and Projects (Education, Emergency Medical Response, Enforcement and Engineering), and Statistical Measures of Success.   

We were recently contacted and informed the Olathe Police Department Traffic Unit has earned the Gold Award for 2018. Bob Hamilton, a representative from KDOT, has requested the opportunity to present the award to the Olathe Police Department Traffic Unit at the City Council meeting on April 16, 2019.
