Supervisors and the Pennsylvania Aggressive Driving Enforcement and Education Program gathered
together to present Officer Stephen Shannon with an award for his efforts to reduce aggressive driving in

willingness to work the aggressive driving special details which normally fall outside of Ofc. Shannon's typical
work schedule, and because Ofc. Shannon strongly believes in the program and demonstrates his belief by
actively engaging in enforcement against aggressive driving.

The Pennsylvania Aggressive Driving Enforcement and Education Program grants funds to Police
Departments through out of the State after an in-depth application process. Washington Township Police
Department has participated in the Aggressive Driving program since 2009, previously it was called
Smooth Operator.  The Aggressive Driving Program allows Washington Township Police Department the
ability to conduct special traffic details within the Township to help provide enforcement and education for
the serious problem of aggressive driving.
