The Spring Hill Police Department is an award-winning agency in traffic safety for the fourth year in a row.

     At the Feb. 28 City Council meeting, Bob Hamilton, law enforcement liaison for the Kansas Department of Transportation, awarded the Platinum AAA Kansas Community Traffic Safety Award to Interim Chief Lance Wipf and the Spring Hill Police Department. 

     It is the third consecutive platinum award for the department and the fourth consecutive year the department received a traffic safety award from AAA. 

     “This award program is designed to encourage community law enforcement agencies to address local traffic safety issues in a coordinated and cost-effective way,” an AAA news release said.

     The police department was recognized for several activities and programs, including: 

  • Having a department policy requiring seat belt use by employees;
  • Participating in the highly successful Kansas teen seat belt usage program, called SAFE;
  • Conducting Click It or Ticket and DUI enforcement campaigns in town as well as a seat belt inspection at the high school;
  • Executing their “CRASH” Community Roadway Awareness enforcement efforts including school zone speed, stop sign adherence and seat belt usage.

Spring Hill is one of 30 police departments in Kansas to receive the award.
