Waverly Police Department 02/01/2018 THE WAVERLY POLICE DEPARTMENT ANNOUNCES SAFE CAMPAIGN PARTICIPATION The Waverly Police Department is partnering with the Tennessee Highway Safety Office (THSO) for its fifth annual Seatbelts Are For Everyone (SAFE) campaign. This statewide initiative is designed to increase seatbelt usage and child passenger safety restraint usage through the implementation of occupant-protection programs, public events, and checkpoints throughout local communities across Tennessee. The SAFE campaign begins February 1, 2018, and concludes August 1, 2018. “We regularly see the difference wearing seat belts can make in preventing injuries. We encourage everyone to buckle up and use proper child restraint seats when driving or riding in a vehicle,” said Waverly Police Chief Grant Gillespie. 2018 will be the fifth year that the THSO has sponsored the SAFE campaign. Last year yielded the following results: • 1,480 child restraint violations • 16,571 seat belt citations • 835 other seat belt enforcement activities “In 2016, Tennessee’s average seatbelt usage rate was 88.95 percent,” said THSO Director Vic Donoho. “Last year, the state’s usage rate decreased to 88.51 percent. Our goal this year is to achieve 100 percent seatbelt usage across Tennessee through the SAFE campaign and other occupant-protection initiatives.” In Tennessee, a disproportionate percentage of unrestrained fatalities tend to occur between the hours of 6:00 p.m. and 5:59 a.m. Historically, approximately fifty percent of Tennessee’s traffic fatalities are unbelted. That percentage increases to nearly sixty when nighttime crashes are examined. Therefore, participating agencies will focus special attention toward nighttime seatbelt enforcement during the SAFE campaign this year.

Officer David Ross and K9 Crockett made a trip to the Waverly Elementary School last week. Third grade students had read a story about a K9 officer and his dog and asked to see Crockett perform some of the tasks they read about. They were able to see Officer Ross speak German to Crockett, use hand signals to give Crockett commands, and they were able to see how Crockett is used to help officers find illegal drugs.
