The Manchester-by-the-Sea Police Department received a $12,000 grant from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
The grants were part of $7.8 million in funding that the Baker-Polito Administration allocated on Monday to provide access to equipment and strengthen training, crime prevention and enforcement initiatives across the Commonwealth.
The NHTSA provided $3.2 million to fund traffic enforcement campaigns, safety equipment, and non-enforcement activities to help reduce vehicle crashes and the resulting injuries and loss of life. The funds are allocated to local agencies by the OGR.
