Awarded $10,000 Grant
SOCIAL CIRCLE GA | Tue August 13, 2013
During this fiscal year, the Social Circle Police Department was the
recipient of a $10,000 grant award from the Georgia Governor’s
Office of Highway Safety (GOHS). The grant was part of the GOHS
Small Agency Incentive Grant Program and is currently being
finalized. The grant awarded federal funds that have been managed
by the GOHS in the State of Georgia.
The grant was designed to fund traffic
safety equipment to small law enforcement agencies for high
visibility enforcement initiatives. The grant was designed to
provide law enforcement agencies, like the Social Circle Police
Department, with adequate tools that they could use to efficiently
and effectively enforce Georgia’s traffic laws and to educate the
public on highway safety issues.
Through the GOHS grant, the Social Circle
Police Department has purchased two computers and related items need
for their installation and use by police officers in assigned police
vehicles. The additional equipment will assist the officers while
they patrol the city and will make their time spent in the patrol
cars more productive. The vehicle based computers will allow the
officers to communicate more efficiently and will allow the officers
to make better use of their time while on patrol. With the ability
to spend more time in their patrol cars, the officers will also be
more visible to the public through their increased time on the
streets, rather than having to spend as much time at the Police
Department offices completing incident reports.
Social Circle Police Chief Terry Sosebee related that law
enforcement agencies, like ours, benefit greatly from federal and
state administered grant programs. The grants allow smaller
agencies the ability to obtain equipment that is often outside their
regular budgetary constraints. The equipment that the grants help
to provide assists the involved officers in enforcing Georgia’s
traffic codes and criminal statutes, thereby saving countless lives
in Georgia, Walton County, and within the City of Social Circle.
