Police win award for pushing seat belts, child safety seats


The Anne Arundel County Police Department won first-place honors in a national program for its work in promoting seat belts, child safety seats and air bags.

The department captured the prize in the 1994 Challenge Awards Program of the International Association of Chiefs of Police on the basis of its traffic safety programs last year.

Operation SEE (Safety, Education and Enforcement), a child passenger safety program; and a seat belt checkpoint at Anne Arundel Community College were two of the newest programs that helped the county department win the honors.

Anne Arundel County received a 93 percent rating, beating second-place finisher Montgomery County by five percentage points.
