Sheriff Brad White is pleased to announce it has received a $10,000 grant from the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety (GOHS). There were 24 small agency incentive grants given across the state and the Lamar County Sheriff’s Office was one. These grants are awarded based upon the partnership with The Governor’s Office of Highway Safety in helping to reduce crashes, injuries, and fatalities across the State of Georgia.The grant will finance the purchase of four (4) mobile data systems. The mobile data systems will allow deputies to access the Sheriff’s Office server remotely to complete reports in the field. Deputies will also be able to conduct NCIC/GCIC Queries of drivers, vehicles, persons, etc. from their vehicles and allow the information to be imported directly into the citation and impound module of the software. The introduction of the mobile data system will increase efficiency and productivity all while keeping Deputies safer.’The Governor’s Office of Highway Safety is committed to keeping everyone safe on our roads and highways, from the smallest precious cargo to the most seasoned drivers,’ said GOHS Director Harris Blackwood. The equipment provided with this funding will enhance the Lamar County Sheriff’s Office’s effectiveness and ability to enforce Georgia’s traffic laws and educate the public on highway safety issues allowing us to further our mission of protecting the lives, persons, property, health and morals of the people.For more information on the Lamar County Sheriff’s Office’s award, contact Ginger Story at 770-358-5377 or email at email@example.com.
