This year, the department was awarded AAA's highest honor, the Platinum Award, which is given to communities that demonstrate outstanding success in addressing local traffic safety issues according to aaanys.com.

"Police departments from Albany to Long Island are rated by AAA and I'm really proud of the officers that do such a great job implementing traffic safety laws in Tuckahoe," said Constanzo.

Congratulations TPD. I think it would be interesting to know which traffic safety issues have been addressed and what issues are on track for attention in the future.

But the can't prevent a bank robbery across the street from their own police station.

Mikle, I don't think any Police Dept. in the country can anticipate crimes to that degree.
