Laguna Beach will receive two grants from the California Office of Traffic Safety, according to city documents.
Earlier this year, the police department applied for the grants. The first grant of $90,000 will go toward overtime so the department can increase staffing for drunk driving and traffic safety issues. It will also go to the DUI checkpoint trailer and travel expenses for staff to attend training and courses related to traffic safety issues.
A second grant of $37,000 will go toward overtime for enforcement staff during three DUI checkpoints in 2013 and equipment and supplies needed for the checkpoints.
