[ARCHIVED] Elk River Police Honored with Commissioner’s Award

ERPD and Partnering Agencies with TZD AwardProtecting people on Minnesota’s roadways is no small feat, and on Wednesday, June 5 the Elk River Police Department, was honored with the Toward Zero Deaths (TZD) Commissioner’s Award from the Minnesota Department of Public Safety. Elk River Police and its partnering agencies (Becker Police Department, Big Lake Police Department, and the Sherburne County Sheriff’s Office) executed continuous, coordinated high-visibility enforcement campaigns to curb issues linked to motor vehicle-related deaths including: distracted driving, impaired driving, texting, pedestrian crosswalk enforcement, and more. It is because of municipal, county, and state partnerships like this that programs like TZD can be implemented to help guide us toward more lives saved on our roads every single day.
