Wilmington Police Receive $35K Grant For Radar Speed Signs

WILMINGTON, MA — The Wilmington Police Department recently received a $34,999.00 Municipal Road Safety grant from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, administered through the Massachusetts Executive Office of Public Safety and Security.

At the most recent Board of Selectmen’s Meeting, Town Manager Jeff Hull announced the town will use the funds to purchase additional radar speed signs (digital signs that tell the driver their current speed as they approach the sign) to mount at new locations around town.

As part of the requirement for purchasing this equipment, Hull explained that Wilmington Police must engage in various traffic enforcement campaigns.

“In the coming fiscal year, the police department will engage in (1) winter impairment driving enforcement; (2) distracted driving enforcement; (3) click it or ticket program; (4) speed enforcement; and (5) summer impaired driving enforcement,” said Town Manager Hull.
