There has been a national recognition for the Tallahassee Police Department.
We recently told you about the traffic unit winning a statewide award for enforcement. The department has just found out that it is also taking home the national award called “The Law Enforcement Challenge."
That means for a city its size, Tallahassee leads the nation in officer training, enforcement and educating the public about traffic safety.
SGT Steve Gauding of the Tallahassee Police Department says, "A lot of people think it’s just enforcement, and that is far from what we're all about. We would prefer to educate the people and get voluntary compliance."
SGT Gauding says the department is working on additional traffic safety programs, hopefully going for the award again next year.
