Upton Receives Highway Safety Grant


Representative David K. Muradian, Jr. (R-Grafton) is excited to announce that the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security (EOPSS) have awarded Highway Safety grants to the Towns of Upton, Grafton,  and Northbridge.

The grants will specifically be awarded to the Police Departments. The town of Grafton will receive a total of $12,310. The community will specifically receive a $4,810 Underage Alcohol Enforcement grant and a $7,500 Traffic Enforcement grant. Similarly, Northbridge and Upton will also be receiving $7,500 Traffic Enforcement grants as well.

The Traffic Enforcement grant includes the use of mobilizations such as “click it or ticket” and “drive sober or get pulled over”. The Underage Alcohol Enforcement grant dedicates funds towards reverse sting operations, shoulder taps, surveillance controls and much more.

“These grant programs are shining examples of the way in which the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security continue to help improve and protect our communities and residents,” stated Representative Muradian. “Advancing safety on our highways and roads is a crucial step in ensuring that residents across the Commonwealth are protected during travel and avoid emergency situations. I am grateful that all 3 towns within my district were lucky enough to be recipients of these grants, and I will continue to advocate for additional funds in the future.”
