ROSWELL, Ga. – The Roswell Police Department is the recipient of a Georgia Highway Safety grant from the Georgia Governor’s Office of Highway Safety (GOHS). The federal grant award is $8,000 and is to be used to stay in compliance with Georgia state law.
The Georgia Highway Safety grants are a major part of a statewide goal to combat deaths and injuries from impaired driving crashes and excessive speeding by increasing the use of safety belts while educating the public about traffic safety and the dangers of DUI.
According to Capt. Ken McRae, the Roswell Police Department will use the grant money to purchase a new Intoxilyzer 9,000, which will replace its existing Intoxilyzer 5,000.
