Law Enforcement Grants
Rural Traffic Enforcement Initiative (RTEI)
In the 2014-2015 Federal Fiscal Year, The Madison County Sheriff’s Office received funding in the amount of $9,100 from the Sheriff’s Rural Traffic Enforcement Initiative, a project that the NYS Sheriffs’ Association serves as the primary grantee in conjunction with the New York State Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee. This project funds overtime for selective traffic enforcement efforts, equipment and project-related travel and training. This project is designed to engage rural counties with respect to the coordination and integration of not only traffic law enforcement activities but also those relating to educational and engineering issues that impact crash frequency and severity.
