TPD's Give Back Initiative
Project Type: Initiative
Bridges_stop Lookingbill_stop Sakadales_stop

The Taneytown police department conducted an initiative to give back to drivers for obeying the state seat belt laws . The officers made 60 traffic stops for compliance of the seatbelt law and issued 60 gift cards for $5 from dunkin donuts . The money for the gift cards was from confiscated and forfeited drug money from a local offender. It was a rewarding experience giving back to those we serve!

Here are a few stops from the initiative 01-22-15
