The Caney Police Department receives the Platinum Safety Award from AAA-Kansas. Caney Police Chief Ron Wade says they appreciate all the citizens who take part in their safety programs. He says those efforts are key to a lack of fatality crashes in Caney for over five years. Wade also says seatbelt use has increased to nearly 90% among drivers and passengers.
Wade says, while his department gets the award, all the congratulations should go to the drivers in Caney who keep the streets safe.
