PAC Receives Funding to Continue Traffic Safety Resource Program
The Prosecuting Attorneys’ Council of Georgia (PAC) is pleased to announce it has received a $475,000 grant from the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety (GOHS).
The grant, which will continue through September of 2021, 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,” Governor’s Office of Highway Safety 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.”
“We are happy to continue our successful partnership with GOHS,” said PAC Executive Director Pete Skandalakis. “We are committed to maintaining our standard of excellence in bringing critical traffic safety training to Georgia’s law enforcement and prosecution professionals.”
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 on the PAC website.
