Grant allows BRPD to increase hours officers spend on the roads

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Baton Rouge police officers will be spending more time on the roads thanks to a grant from the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission.

The money will allow for more enforcement hours to crack down on impaired driving, seatbelt usage, speeding and underage drinking.

The National Highway Safety Administration was a partner in helping with the grant.
