Safe Communities is a federal traffic-safety grant through Ohio Department of Public Safety and Ohio Traffic Safety Office. The goal of the Safe Communities grant is to work together as a community to prevent traffic-related fatalities and injuries in Tuscarawas County by increasing traffic-safety awareness.

Their primary focus is seat-belt use, impaired driving, motorcycle safety and distracted driving among adults and teens. Safe Communities of Tuscarawas County conducts traffic-safety media campaigns, coordinates events and activities, and distributes educational materials to help prevent fatal traffic crashes and injuries from occurring in Tuscarawas County.

Members of the Safe Communities Coalition will meet on Feb. 27 to review the traffic fatalities from 2018 to identify any trends or measures that can be taken to prevent future traffic fatalities in the county.
