The City of Pinehurst Police Department received 2 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.  Pictured is Lt. Keith Reneau and Officer Mark Grizzaffi receiving 2 ceremonial checks from Bridgett Hlavinka, who is the Traffic Safety Specialist of the Beaumont office of the Texas Department of Transportation.

Chief Fred R. Hanauer III states 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 stated further, “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.”
