The Beverly Hills Police Department (BHPD) has received a $92,000 grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety. The grant’s focus is on the safety of the traveling public. As such, it is intended to assist the BHPD in its efforts to reduce traffic injuries and deaths.

“These are trying times, and now more than ever, it is important that we are at the forefront of traffic safety. This funding allows us to educate and enhance the safety of all residents,” said Beverly Hills Interim Police Chief Dominick Rivetti.

The grant will provide funding for a number of safety programs, including police patrols with emphasis on alcohol and impaired driver prevention;  patrols with emphasis on education and awareness of traffic rights for pedestrians and bicyclists; patrols with emphasis on education and awareness of the state’s hands-free cell phone law and patrols with emphasis on education and awareness of common causes of crashes, including failure to signal, yield, stop at stop signs, and improper lane changing or turning.

The grant will also help fund presentations for community education on many traffic safety issues such as speed, distracted driving, pedestrian safety, and bicycle safety.

“Through education and behavior changes, we hope to create an environment that is safe and equitable for all road users in our community.” said Chief Rivetti.

The grant will provide funding for the 2021 federal fiscal year, from Oct. 1, 2020, to Sept. 30, 2021.
