Police win road safety award
CHARLEVILLE police have won a recognition award for their Stay on Track Outback project.
Senior Constables Sarah Grayson and Juliet McGrath said they were pretty chuffed to be recognised by the RACQ and the Centre for Accident Research and Road Safety at QUT in Brisbane.
"It's pretty prestigious," said Snr Constable Grayson.
"It's a new thing they came up with for projects that are ongoing.
"(We also won) a Queensland road safety award in 2013."
Road Policing Command Acting Assistant Commissioner Mike Keating was on hand to congratulate the team for their dedication to road safety.
"The Charleville police-run project, Stay on Track Outback, aims to educate drivers on the hazards presented on roads, particularly in regional Queensland," he said.
"The project has been running for several years and it is a credit to the officers who run the project to keep it current.
"The Charleville police officers, together with country music singer Josh Arnold, recently collaborated to produce a catchy song and video clip to promote the importance of road safety for the Stay on Track Outback project."
