PennDOT honors Berks police officers for keeping roads safe

EXETER TWP., Pa. - Police in Berks County are being recognized for keeping the roads safe.

District Attorney John Adams presented awards from PennDOT to several officers during a ceremony in Exeter Township on Friday.

PennDOT said the officers were recognized for going above and beyond to crack down on dangerous driving by taking part in "aggressive-driving campaigns."

"This isn't a speed-only kind of thing for us in the law enforcement world," said Sgt. David Bentz, Exeter Township Police Department. "We definitely target those people that follow too closely, those people that run red lights and those people that avoid stop signs."

Many of the officers honored Friday wrote the most citations or made the most traffic stops to curb aggressive driving, officials said.
