The Ponca City Police Department will be finalizing this years “Click it or Ticket” campaign with a checkpoint.

The national campaign, targeting drivers that do not comply with proper safety belt and child restraint usage, runs through June 5.

These funds are used for equipment and overtime salaries for officers to emphasize safe and sober driving in the awarded communities. The Ponca City Police Department has received this grant funding for several consecutive years.
