DCSO Receives Grant for Traffic Enforcement

Douglas County Sheriff’s Office

October 24, 2019

PRESS RELEASE

Douglas County Sheriff’s Office Awarded $20,000.00 Traffic Enforcement Grant

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office announced today that it has been awarded a major traffic enforcement grant from the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety (GOHS) in Atlanta. We received the grant in recognition of our lifesaving work as the coordinating agency of GOHS’s Western Regional Traffic Enforcement Network. There are sixteen traffic enforcement networks across the state that help enforce Georgia’s year-round safety belt, speed and impaired driving campaigns.

“This is our way of supporting the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office through its continued leadership via Coordinator Dep. Matthew Atkins and the Western Regional traffic enforcement network,” said GOHS Law Enforcement Services Director Roger Hayes. “We want to make sure they can continue their region-wide efforts to protect Georgia motorists from drunk and otherwise dangerous drivers. They’ve proven their dedication and this grant serves not only as recognition for that hard work, but as means for continuing the GOHS mission of reducing crashes, injuries and fatalities on our roads.”

The Western Regional Traffic Enforcement Network includes law enforcement agencies in eight counties, which include Douglas, Carroll, Haralson, Heard, Troup, Coweta, Meriwether, and Paulding Counties.

Sheriff Tim Pounds and the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office are very pleased and appreciative to receive this grant from the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety. This grant will assist and help along with the other agencies in the Western Regional Network by keeping our roadways safe for the citizens of each county.

The GOHS grant awards $20,000.00 to the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, with half to support the activities of the traffic enforcement network and half to be spent on traffic safety equipment for our agency. The coordinator in the Western Regional traffic enforcement network region will coordinate year-round waves of high visibility, concentrated patrols, multi-jurisdictional road checks and sobriety checkpoints as a partner in campaigns such as Click It or Ticket, Operation Zero Tolerance, and the Thunder Taskforce.

For more information on the award, contact Dep. Matthew Atkins at 770-942-2121 or by email at matkins@sheriff.douglas.ga.us. For more information on the grant program, call 404-656-6996 or visit www.gahighwaysafety.org.

DCSO Goes Pink!

In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, deputies from the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office will carry pink handcuffs throughout the month of October.

Pink is the color used to express moral support of women with breast cancer. Breast cancer is the most common type of non-skin cancer in women in the United States.  October is the month dedicated to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure.

DCSO deputies will utilize the pink handcuffs during arrests throughout the month to promote breast cancer awareness. The DCSO encourages women to get mammograms, and all citizens to support an organization of your choice to help bring awareness to breast cancer.
