Pinehurst Police Department receives TxDOT grants

The City of Pinehurst Police Department received two grants from the Texas Department of Transportation(TxDOT) for their recent participation in the 2016 Labor Day incentive and their participation in both the Memorial Day and Labor Day incentive programs. 

The grants are $3000 each and will go towards equipment for the police department. Lt. Keith Reneau and Officer Mark Grizzaffi accepted the two ceremonial checks Dec. 2 from Bridgett Hlavinka, who is the Traffic Safety Specialist of TxDOT’s Beaumont office of the Texas Department of Transportation.

Chief Fred R. Hanauer III said that he is proud of his officers for their proactive approach to traffic issues and also of Lt. Keith Reneau for spearheading the program.  He remarked, “The important thing is that we can purchase new equipment such as radar guns and other things used to further our efforts without using local tax dollars and at the same time, insuring a safer community.  I appreciate everyone involved, especially Mrs. Hlvinka of TxDOT.”
