Sheriff’s Office Gets Grant

The Jeff Davis County Sheriff’s Office has received a $25,031 grant from the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety (GOHS). The grant was awarded based on the partnership with GOHS in helping to reduce crashes, injuries, and fatalities across Georgia.
“The loss of one life on our roads is one too many, and the fact almost all fatal traffic crashes can be prevented is one reason why we are awarding this grant,” GOHS Director Allen Poole said. “The target of zero traffic deaths in our nation is achievable, and we will continue to help develop and implement educational messages and enforcement campaigns aimed at bringing our state one step closer to that goal.”
Jeff Davis County Sheriff Preston Bohannon added, “the partnership we have developed with the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety is providing us highway safety resources that we need to help keep the citizens and visitors of Jeff Davis County safe on our roadways. We are very appreciative to Mr. Poole and his team for their commitment to highway safety in Georgia.”
As law enforcement partners in the Operation Zero Tolerance DUI and Click It or Ticket seatbelt campaigns, the Jeff Davis County Sheriff’s Office will conduct mobilizations throughout the year in coordination with GOHS’s year-round waves of high visibility patrols and multi-jurisdictional sobriety checkpoints.
The grant will continue through September, 2021.
