The Fortuna Police Department will be presented an award in the Fortuna City Hall's council chambers today for outstanding traffic safety performance.

At 11 a.m., the department will receive the California Law Enforcement Challenge second place award, according to a California Highway Patrol press release. The challenge, sponsored by the CHP, is a competition between similar-sized and types of law enforcement agencies for the best traffic safety programs in the state.

The challenge also includes efforts to train officers, enforce laws, educate the public about occupant protection, impaired driving and speeding, the release said.
