PAC Receives Funding to Continue Traffic Safety Resource Program
The Prosecuting Attorneys’ Council of Georgia (PAC) is pleased to announce it has received a $479,489 grant from the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety (GOHS).
The grant, which will continue through September of 2020, will provide much needed funding to train law enforcement officers and prosecutors to more effectively detect and prosecute impaired and/or unsafe drivers.
“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,” Allen Poole, Director of the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety said. “The target of zero traffic deaths in our nation is achievable, and we will continue to help develop and implement educational messages, enforcement campaigns, and other safety initiatives aimed at bringing us one step closer to our goal.”
“We are pleased to be partnered with GOHS in providing this valuable training designed to improve the effective adjudication of traffic safety criminal cases and the reduction of traffic safety violations,” said PAC Executive Director Pete Skandalakis.
Law enforcement officers or prosecutors that would like to schedule training in your jurisdictions, please contact the PAC Training Division at (770) 282-6300 or firstname.lastname@example.org. For upcoming training opportunities, visit the training page of the PAC website.
