Suffolk County Police commissioner Rodney K. Harrison distributed reflective vests to pedestrians and bicyclists as part of the department’s ongoing roadway safety programs during a press conference in Patchogue on Sept. 5.
Home Depot donated reflective vests to the department that will be available, while supplies last, at Suffolk County Police Headquarters in Yaphank. Community Relations Bureau and COPE officers will also distribute the vests as well as reflective stickers for children’s bicycles.
Roadway safety is an issue that impacts everyone in Suffolk County and the department has focused on enforcement efforts to discourage reckless behavior on our roads. These donations are aimed at improving visibility and provide a level of protection against potential injuries.
