Doraville Police Dept. of Doraville Ga. has been awarded a public safety partnership grant totaling $10,000 from the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety (GOHS) in Atlanta.

The incentive grant, which will last through September of this year, is designed for smaller law enforcement agencies that have partnered with GOHS and excelled in participating in highway safety initiatives as well as making their communities safe during the previous year.

“Doraville Police Dept. is thankful to the GOHS for including our department in the incentive grant. With this grant we were able to acquire new flashlights for all of our officers. Our officer’s safety, whether on the side of the road or clearing a building, is our utmost concern. Being able to provide our officers with long lasting, bright and rapidly chargeable light is of great benefit to our officers”, said Chief John King.

“The goal of the grant is to reward agencies for their proactive approach to traffic safety and to provide them with the necessary tools to effectively continue their lifesaving efforts”, said Harris Blackwood, Director of the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety.
