TORRANCE, Calif. – The Torrance Police Department has received a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, the department announced Thursday.
The $90,500 grant will be used for a traffics record improvement project that the department says will improve the timeliness of reporting crash and citation data.
“Accurate and timely data is critical to identifying and prioritizing traffic safety issues,” Torrance Police Sgt. Todd Venero said in a statement. “The community will benefit greatly from this funding, which will allow us to increase our ability to identify problem areas and provide traffic safety resources where they are needed most.”
Grant funds are earmarked for a new electronic crash and citation data reporting system. Funding for the project was provided by the California Office of Traffic Safety and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
