Newtown police receive funding for speed control enforcement

Several municipalities in the Greater Danbury area are eligible for federal funds, funneled through the state, for speed enforcement efforts.  

 

Newtown Police say they have accepted a $17,400 grant to be used along high risk rural roads.  The program runs from Monday through September 30th.  A majority of the funding is being used for overtime costs for the officers carrying out the enforcement effort.  About $4,000 of the grant is being used to pay for a new radar unit for one of the patrol cars. 

 

118 municipalities in the state are eligible for funding.
