Officers honored for targeting agressive driving in Lancaster County

They help us stay safe on the roads and now PennDOT  is honoring their efforts.

PennDOT District 8 recognized 8 municipal police officers from Lancaster county today at the Manheim Township Police Department.

These men and women were honored for their outstanding service in PennDOT’s Aggressive Driving Enforcement and Education Project. The project helps reduce aggressive driving behaviors like speeding, tailgating, and running red lights.

“Essentially, these types of enforcement details — the aggressive driver enforcement details– save lives. When you stop this type of behavior, it allows people to get to where they’re going safely on the roadway,” Lancaster County Assistant District Attorney Ande Gonzalez said.

Officers across the state take part in the program. Last week, officers in Dauphin and Cumberland Counties were honored.

Officers honored today represent areas including Columbia, Millersville, and West Hempfield.
