Share this post

Hammond PD
Police in Hammond today announced they were recently awarded a 75-hundred dollar grant through the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute to reduce the number of pedestrian and bicycle crashes in the city through increased enforcement. Lt. Patrick Vicari says they have had a number of pedestrian/bicycle crashes with motor vehicles, most notably, the recent crash that occurred on Calumet Avenue that resulted in the death of a 13 year old Hammond boy.
Lt. Vicari says they will primarily look at school zones to start, but will expand to parks, neighborhood areas and anywhere else they identify as a problem area with this issue. Police are encouraging pedestrians to use sidewalks, crosswalks and obey traffic control signals and also encourage motorists to be mindful of school zones and to watch for pedestrians and school crossing guards.
