Congratulations to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office and all our Law Enforcement partners honored at the 2017 Florida Law Enforcement Traffic Safety Challenge Awards on July 6. Your dedication to protecting Florida residents and visitors is making our state safer and helping pave the way to our ultimate goal of zero traffic fatalities.

The Broward County Sheriff’s Office received the Alert Today Florida Enforcement Agency of the Year award for their success and commitment to High Visibility Enforcement (HVE) promoting pedestrian and bicycle safety. The HVE Campaign focuses law enforcement resources on areas with the highest incidences of traffic crashes resulting in fatalities or serious injuries to pedestrians and bicyclists. Broward County’s exemplary work in educating road users about pedestrian and bicycle traffic safety laws and increasing compliance demonstrates its unwavering focus on this vitally important issue. Sixty-five law enforcement agencies competed for the prestigious award.
