Law Enforcement Grants

The Vermont State Highway Safety Office (SHSO) through funding from National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), is responsible for reducing injuries, deaths, and economic losses resulting from motor vehicle crashes, and its mission is to save lives, prevent injuries, and reduce traffic-related health care and other economic costs.

The Vermont citizens expect our state to protect their interest by

  • Working toward greater traffic safety
  • Ensuring that vehicles are as safe as possible
  • Striving to keep unsafe drivers off the road

To reduce the threat of impaired drivers, promote the use of seat belts and child safety seats, provide consumer information on motor vehicle safety topics, and increase compliance with traffic laws, SHSO collaborates with law enforcement agencies and organizations to keep Vermont's streets and highways safer.

The law enforcement community is a key partner to SHSO and NHTSA. Therefore, NHTSA designated the Traffic Law Enforcement Division to anticipate and respond to the needs of law enforcement and to develop innovative products for law enforcement's use in reducing traffic crashes, injuries, and deaths.
