AAA Awards Cleveland Heights Police Department

AAA Spotlight

The American Automobile Association (AAA) annually presents the  Community Traffic Safety Award to communities for their efforts to  improve local traffic safety. This year, the Cleveland Heights Police  Department was honored with the highest level of achievement - Platinum  Award.

 "I am very proud of the men and women serving the Cleveland Heights  Police Department," said Annette Mecklenburg, Cleveland Heights Chief of Police. "It is great to see that their hard work to keep the people  living or visiting our city safe and secure is being nationally  recognized. It is truly an honor to receive the 2017 Platinum Community  Traffic Safety Award."

 AAA has multiple criteria used to determine award winners and their  level of award. They review a community's programs or projects that  address local traffic safety issues for all modes of travel (e.g. motor  vehicle, bicycle, pedestrian, child passenger safety, motorcycles, etc.) through education and enforcement.

 The City is committed to traffic safety and has assigned more than 10  officers to a special traffic safety unit. Over the past three years,  Cleveland Heights has experienced a 14 percent drop in overall traffic  accidents, a 50 percent drop in bicycle accidents and a 70 percent drop  in pedestrian accidents.
