The New London Police Department has received three grants. Police Chief Ed Andersen said he won grants for DWI patrols, a STEP grant to enforce unregistered cars and speeding and the third grant was to stop distracted driving. Chief Andersen said the funds from the grants allows the department to pay officers overtime above and beyond being on patrol. It also adds hours for weekend patrols. Plans are in the works for officers to talk with Colby Sawyer college students about texting and distracted driving.
