GOHS Awards Impaired Driving Training Programs Grant to GPSTC

The Georgia Public Safety Training Center (GPSTC) in Forsyth, Georgia is pleased to announce that it has received two training grants totaling $365,200 from the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety (GOHS), the state agency charged with educating the public on traffic safety and facilitating the implementation of programs that reduce crashes, injuries and fatalities on Georgia roadways.

The grants, which will continue through September of 2013, will help finance the Advanced DUI/Impaired Driving and the Speed Enforcement training programs for all state and local law enforcement agencies within the state of Georgia.

“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. “This grant will help GPSTC keep Georgians safer on our roadways.”

The DUI/Impaired Driving and Speed Enforcement training programs provide law enforcement officers in the field with the training and knowledge to arrest and successfully prosecute offenders. “The ultimate goal of our programs is to prevent the needless injuries and deaths that are directly attributed to impaired driving and speed-related crashes,” said GPSTC DRE Program Manager Jonathan Fuss.
