PAC Receives Funding to Continue Traffic Safety Resource Program
The Prosecuting Attorneys’ Council of Georgia (PAC) is pleased to announce it has received a $502,173 grant from the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety (GOHS).
The grant, which will continue through September of 2022, will provide much needed funding to train law enforcement officers and prosecutors to more effectively detect and prosecute impaired and/or unsafe drivers.
“With the increase in the number of persons killed in traffic crashes in Georgia and across the nation over the last year, the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety is working with partners like PAC to implement programs designed to stop the risky driving behaviors that are contributing to a majority of our serious-injury and fatality crashes,” Allen Poole, Director of the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety said.” “Many of the fatal traffic crashes on our roads are preventable, and we will continue to work with our educational and enforcement partners to develop programs and initiatives that are designed to get Georgia to our goal of zero traffic deaths.”
“Thanks to the continued support of our partners at GOHS, this important work continues,” said PAC Executive Director Pete Skandalakis. “As Georgia traffic safety laws continue to evolve, the need for quality training programs for law enforcement and prosecution professionals remains a top priority.”
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.
