On Monday, June 22nd, the Redwood Falls Police Department accepted a $2,500 award from the Bayer Fund to support the department‘s Toward Zero Death (TZD) Initiative. TZD is a statewide, multi–disciplinary approach to roadway safety that has a goal of achieving zero motor vehicle deaths each year.
Redwood Falls Police Department has participated in the TZD program for several years by providing education and traffic enforcement to the community.
The $2,500.00 award will be used to purchase a squad computer that is necessary for officers to do traffic enforcement. The computer will be installed into a police department squad that can be used for dedicated traffic enforcement in support of the TZD program, and allows the regular fleet of squads to be used for patrol and calls for service.
“Throughout the years, the grants given through Bayer Fund have helped strengthen our communities across the United States,” said Al Mitchell, President of Bayer Fund. “We‘re proud to be able to provide support to develop programs that help combat challenges such as food insecurity, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education and support services to patients and families managing an illness or disease.”
In 2019, Bayer Fund awarded more than $14 million to over 3,200 charitable and nonprofit organizations to help address essential needs in food and nutrition, STEM education and community development. Over the last five years, nonprofit organizations across the U.S. have received more than $79 million.
