Anaheim, Calif. – The Anaheim Police Department received a $52,500 grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) that will fund activities emphasizing the safety of bicyclists and pedestrians.

Anaheim Police Chief Jorge Cisneros said, “Our partnership with the California Office of Traffic Safety is critical in our ability to fund and provide much needed training in the area of bicycle and pedestrian safety.”

“Every bicyclist and pedestrian should feel safe on the road,” OTS Director Barbara Rooney said. “Education is one of many important tools that collectively work to make sure everyone, regardless of how they travel, reaches their destination safely.”

Grant funds will support a variety of activities focused on bicycle and pedestrian safety:

  • Community bicycle and walk “audits” of streets with a high rate of pedestrian and/or bicyclists death and serious injury crashes.
  • Participate in “Open Streets” events encouraging biking and walking.
  • Bicycle training courses that educate youth on safe riding behaviors.
  • Helmet fitting inspections and distribution of helmets to those in need.
  • Community and school education presentations.
  • Pop up events that promote the importance of visibility on roads with safety equipment such as reflective armbands /leg bands and bicycle headlights/taillights.

The grant program will run through September 2023.

Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
