"These grants help fund a variety of enforcement, legal and educational initiatives across the state including speed enforcement, first responder equipment purchases, DUI prosecutors and child passenger safety training," Schroer said.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration provides the funding for the GHSO grants.
The grants, totaling 398 for the 2012-213 funding cycle, are awarded to agencies that applied based on a defined problem and statistical need.
Each year, the GHSO accepts applications from agencies across the state for available highway safety funds.
Applications are reviewed and scored by the GHSO and external highway safety advocates.
