All Traffic Solutions Announces NASRO Scholarship Program and Traffic Safety Grant Opportunity
All Traffic Solutions realizes that School Resource Officers and Administrators are responsible for many aspects of school safety including violence, bullying, security, emergency plans and improving child pedestrian safety in school zones.
There are very few more worthwhile places for traffic calming than around our schools. Children aren’t always aware of the risks around them and these areas typically have lots of activity at varying hours leading to unusual traffic patterns. Our radar speed displays and variable message signs improve driver awareness and help keep traffic moving smoothly by communicating clearly with the public.
The National Association of School Resource Officers is dedicated to protecting the faculty and students in schools and promoting a positive image within communities.
However, due to shrinking budgets, spending constraints and heavier workloads, some districts will have to put off attendance at this year’s NASRO Conference being held June 28th – June 30th in Baltimore, MD. Additionally, the capacity to purchase equipment to reduce speeding in school zones may have been delayed.
We want to help! All Traffic Solutions is proud to sponsor NASRO by donating the funds to cover registration fees for one pair. This pair MUST consist of a SRO and an Administrator. Applicants MUST also be members of NASRO.
Applicants can take advantage of this opportunity by completing the online application on our website at www.alltrafficsolutions.com/nasro-scholarship-grant.html and returning it to the attention of Lori Miles. The deadline to apply is June 1, 2009. All Traffic Solutions will notify the winning pair no later than Friday, June 5th.
More importantly, ATS is introducing our own grant program that will award school districts traffic calming equipment based on their safety plan submissions to effectively address school zone speeding related injury or fatality incidents. We’d like to invite you to visit us at Booth #54 to learn more about how this program could benefit your community and get feedback from you on how ATS can spread the word to school districts across the country.
