The Governor’s Office of Highway Safety (GOHS) awarded the Lake Havasu City Police Department a grant of $30,178 to be used to conduct increased traffic enforcement and to purchase radar tracking equipment.  The S.T.E.P. (Selective Traffic Enforcement Program) grant provides the Lake Havasu City Police Department the funds needed to increase traffic enforcement capabilities by assigning personnel on overtime to concentrate on speed enforcement activities.

Increased traffic enforcement reduces incidences of traffic fatalities and injuries resulting from speeding, aggressive driving, red light running and other forms of risky driving behavior through enforcement, education and public awareness, which makes our roads safer for all motorists.

As part of the grant, the Lake Havasu City Police Department is required to maintain and submit statistics to the GOHS on a regular basis.

Public Information Officer:  Detective Chris Angus (928) 855-1171
