WICHITA FALLS, Texas (KAUZ) - The Wichita Falls Police Department has released fourth quarter and end of the year statistics on the TxDOT Comprehensive STEP Grant.

The grant allows law enforcement to work overtime to reduce the incidence of speeding, driving while intoxicated, failure to use occupant restraint systems, distracted driving and intersection traffic control violations.

“With all of that, the different types of areas they work, intersections, out on the freeway, whatever it might be, seatbelt laws, it’s always to make our people safe and to make it safer out there on the street for everyone,” WFPD PIO Sgt. Charlie Eipper said.

WFPD officials said organizations that are eligible for STEP funds include the Texas Department of Public Safety, sheriff’s offices, constable’s offices and local police departments.
