Operation Safe Ride to School
A Message from the Police Department
Throughout the year, Montgomery County Police Department (MCPD) officers, in addition to their daily patrols educating the public on traffic laws and enforcing those laws, conduct focused traffic-safety initiatives. In April, which is recognized as Distracted Driving Awareness Month, the Police Department has conducted enforcement that focuses on the illegal use of cell phones while driving. In May, the Police Department will participate in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Click It or Ticket Campaign, which is intended to increase the awareness of using seat belts and child safety seats and using them properly.
