SNELLVILLE – The Snellville Police Department has received a $10,000 grant from the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety to help finance equipment for traffic safety operations and law enforcement activities.
There were 25 small agency incentive grants given across the state including SPD’s. These grants are awarded based upon the partnership with the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety in helping to reduce crashes, injuries and fatalities across the state.
The grant will continue through September of 2016.
“The Governor’s Office of Highway Safety is committed to keeping everyone safe on our roads and highways, from the smallest precious cargo to the most seasoned drivers,” said GOHS Director Harris Blackwood.
“The Snellville Police Department is honored to receive the funding from GOHS to improve our traffic safety activities, and look forward to working with GOHS in the future,” said Chief of Police Roy Whitehead.
SPD will continue its efforts to protect and serve by using effective and proven standards of excellence, with a positive and progressive attitude in every aspect of public service.
