Hammond, Lake Station Police Recognized for Traffic Safety

Two Region police departments were recently recognized as being the best in Indiana for traffic safety in 2013 by the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute. Both the Hammond and Lake Station Police Departments participate in the Operation Pull Over program and the Lake County Drunk Driving Task Force, which was also recognized as the best in the state. Hammond Police Lt. Patrick Vicari told the Region News Team they were judged by the entire grant year covering seat belt, drunk driving, aggressive driving enforcement, and they look at the number of citations and arrests made.

Lt. Vicari says Hammond Police received a ten-thousand dollar equipment grant as a result of being recognized, while Lake Station Police received an equipment grant for eight-thousand dollars.
