The Spring Hill Police Department was presented with a Platinum AAA Traffic Safety Award during the February 23 City Council meeting. The department is one of just 25 Kansas police departments to qualify for a 2016 AAA award.

According to a press release from AAA, the award recognizes the Spring Hill Police Department for the following initiatives:

  • A community-based traffic safety program that identifies traffic safety problems and formulates solutions.
  • Participation in the successful Kansas teen seat belt usage program, called "SAFE."
  • The "CRASH" Community Roadway Awareness efforts.
  • School zone speed signs with flashing lights and zone times.

According to the release, these efforts have resulted in: 

  • Vehicle occupant injuries dropping by nearly half in the last year.
  • Zero fatalities in 2015.
  • Steady seat belt use by adults, teens, and child passengers.
  • A decrease from four to zero alcohol-related crashes in the last year.

This is the second AAA Kansas Community Traffic Safety Award received by the department but the first at the Platinum level awarded to Spring Hill.

Chief Richard Mann accepted the award on behalf of the police department from Bob Hamilton, Law Enforcement Liaison with the Kansas Department of Transportation.
