Snellville Police Department Awarded H.E.A.T. Grant from the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety

The Snellville Police Department is pleased to announce it has received a $95,096.06 grant from the
Governor’s Office of Highway Safety (GOHS). These funds will continue to support the department’s Highway Enforcement of Aggressive Traffic (H.E.A.T.) unit.

The funds from the grant will help finance operating expenses and activity hours for the H.E.A.T. unit. The
goal of the H.E.A.T. unit will be to reduce crashes, injuries, and fatalities caused by impaired driving,
speeding, and unrestrained occupants.

The Snellville Police Department H.E.A.T. unit will participate in G.O.H.S. mobilizations and campaigns
such as Click It or Ticket, Operation Zero Tolerance as well as the G.O.H.S. Thunder Task Force
mobilizations. The H.E.A.T. unit will also partner with regional local traffic enforcement networks to further
combat impaired and aggressive driving on local roadways.

“The Snellville Police Department is excited to continue our partnership with the Governor’s Office of
Highway Safety. The grant will enable us to increase our enforcement efforts allowing us to impact impaired
driving, distracted driving, speeding and other serious traffic offenses occurring in our city. This will help us
achieve our goal to significantly reduce injuries and fatalities resulting from these violations while improving
the safety on our roadways for the motoring public,” said SPD Chief Greg Perry.

The grant year for this award runs through Oct. 1, 2022 to Sept. 30, 2023.
