Camillus Police Chief Thomas M. Winn reported last week the town of Camillus was selected as one of three municipalities in Onondaga County to receive the Award Automobile Association of America of Western and Central New York's Platinum Award for 2009, the highest community traffic safety recognition awarded by the group.
The Platinum Award is given to communities that statistically demonstrate measurable effectiveness in addressing traffic safety issues. The town of Camillus Police Department prepared and submitted the Community Traffic Safety Award Package and was also recognized for its award-winning traffic safety programs.
This is the third consecutive year Camillus has been a recipient of the Platinum Award, of which only 10 were given throughout New York state.
On Tuesday Jan. 12, Winn, Capt. Steve Rotunno and Lt. Tim Macholl represented the Camillus Police Department at the 22nd Annual Onondaga County Traffic Safety Advisory Boards luncheon held at Justin's Grill in East Syracuse.
Camillus Police Officer Kevin Skibinski was also recognized as the recipient of the OCTSAB Speed Awareness Award for his contribution to reducing motor vehicle collisions in the town of Camillus in the area of speed enforcement.
