This initiative was made possible by grant funding from the Maryland Highway Safety Office for
enforcement overtime and the City of Frostburg.
Chief Costello commended Sergeant Nathan Curry for his work on the grant. “Sgt. Curry worked
both initiatives and demonstrated outstanding initiative and work on this focused enforcement
effort. Texting and driving is one of the most dangerous activities on the road today, and I
appreciate the great work to keep our City safe,” said Chief Costello.
