    Waynesboro GA.- The Burke 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. The Burke County Sheriff’s Office received the grant in recognition of its lifesaving work as the coordinating agency of GOHS’s East Central 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 Burke County Sheriff’s Office through its continued leadership via Coordinator Sgt. Brandon Reeves and the East Central 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.”
