Five East Niagara police departments -- and three from Orleans County -- were recognized Thursday by AAA for their efforts in traffic safety.

Ten police officials from eight area departments enjoyed lunch at Donna
Eick's on Thursday -- in recognition of their traffic safety efforts.
AAA’s top Platinum awards are given to “Commendable Leaders” for their outstanding efforts and enforcement activities geared towards making communities safer over a consecutive three year period. The recipients of the prestigious awards were Middleport Police Department, New York State Police in Lockport, the Niagara County Sheriff's Office and the Albion Police Department,

A Gold awards, the second highest recognition to be given, was awarded to the Lockport Police Department. Medina PD received a Silver award, while Bronze was bestowed to the Barker and Holley Police departments.

Representatives from each department were on hand at a special luncheon at Donna Eick's restaurant, 7 Charles St., where they received plaques from AAA.

“We are proud of all these departments for their achievement and participation in the Community Traffic Safety Program,” said JJ Miller, AAA East Central Safety Advisor. “They went above and beyond the call of duty by organizing projects to make their communities safer places for motorists and residents.”

To be eligible for the annual awards, a community must conduct traffic safety promotions and educate the public on safety topics.

LPD Capt. Mike Niethe accepted his department's Platinum Award from AAA.
