Dec. 13 - Governor’s Office of Highway Safety Awards H.E.A.T Grant to Savannah Police

Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

December 13, 2019 - The Savannah Police Department recently announced that it has been awarded $118,100.25 from the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety (GOHS) to continue the Highway Enforcement of Aggressive Traffic (H.E.A.T) grant, which was originally awarded in 2016.

The 2020 grant award will continue from Oct. 1, 2019 to Sept. 30, 2020 and will help finance three traffic officer positions, regular operating expenses, telecommunications and travel within the Traffic Unit. The City of Savannah will continue to provide a grant match in the amount of $43,349.17 to cover expenses within the unit.

“Our H.E.A.T Unit has been an integral component of our public safety mission of keeping motorists and pedestrians safe in the City of Savannah,” said Chief Roy Minter. “This team continues to stay vigilant in addressing aggressive driving, enforcing DUI laws, combating excessive speeding, enforcing occupant restraints and educating motorists on driver safety. We are happy to partner with the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety to continue this mission and believe their contribution has made a big difference in the safety of our residents and visitors.”

The H.E.A.T. Unit will participate in traffic safety campaigns such as Click-It or Ticket, Operation Zero Tolerance, 100 Days of Summer Heat and Rolling Thunder Mobilizations throughout Georgia. The unit will also participate in traffic safety education programs throughout the city.
