Van Buren Police Department News

Seat belts save lives every day. They can only save lives, however, if they’re used, and there are still many people in America who don’t buckle up. Wearing a seat belt can reduce the risk of a fatal injury by 45%. This is why your community needs to know that wearing a seat belt can make the difference between life and death. Thanksgiving weekend, millions will hit the roads, eager to spend time with family and friends. It’s one of the busiest travel times of the year, and unfortunately more people on the roadways means the potential for more vehicle crashes. The Van Buren Police Department will be participating in the State Seat Belt Mobilization on Nov 20th -26th.
