ZACHARY, LA (WAFB) - The Zachary Police Department has been awarded a grant from the Louisiana Highway and Safety Commission (LHSC) for 2016. The department will be participating in both the "Click it or Ticket" seatbelt safety program and the "Drive Sober Get Pulled Over" campaign.
The "Click it or Ticket" program has been ongoing since May 23 and will end June 5. The "Drive Sober Get Pulled Over" campaign will not run until August 19 and will continue through September 5. Zachary PD plans to conduct DWI checkpoints throughout the city during the campaign.
Police hope these campaigns will help to educate the public about safe driving practices.
