Longview PD Receives Grant To Help Watch Traffic Violators

Traffic violators beware. A grant just received by the Longview Police Department allows officers to work overtime, to be on the look-out for those driving under the influence and those who are not wearing their seat belts. The department received more than $33,000.

This is the third year the department has received the grant. Last year, the department spent more than 900 hours watching for traffic violators.
