Flossmoor Police get ComEd grant for safety speed signs

The Flossmoor Police Department has received one of 21 ComEd grants awarded through its Powering Safe Communities program.
 
The ComEd awards were given for projects that improve the efficiency and delivery of public safety programs, increase community resiliency and address unmet safety needs. Applications to ComEd were reviewed by the Metropolitan Mayors Caucus.
 
The $4,312 grant to Flossmoor helps fund two portable, programmable and energy-efficient speed display signs for use at multiple locations throughout the village. The signs will allow the police department to set sign configurations, schedule operating modes and gather traffic data for analysis. 
 
The village’s grant application said the goal is to increase motorists' awareness of their traveling speed in school zones and achieve better adherence to speed limits on residential streets.
 
"At ComEd, safety is our number one priority — not just for our employees and our customers, but for the greater communities where we live, work and play,” said Terence R. Donnelly, president and COO of ComEd. 
 
“For the last few years, we’ve delivered on that promise by partnering with the Metropolitan Mayors Caucus to carry out the Powering Safe Communities Program. We are pleased to see proposals from this year’s grantees to invest in innovative technologies that will strengthen their response to critical safety and health concerns.”
