SPD Announces SAFE Campaign Participation

Posted 01-17-18

The Sevierville 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.

“In Tennessee, about 50% of traffic fatalities each year are unbelted,” said SPD Chief Don Myers. “This just isn’t acceptable. Please help save lives by ensuring that you, your children, family and friends use their seatbelts and child safety seats every time you travel.”
