DeKalb County residents could see a reduction in deadly crashes thanks to a $34,000 grant from the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety.
The agency gave DeKalb County police the highway enforcement of aggressive traffic, or H.E.A.T., grant, which will help them reduce traffic crashes caused by “aggressive and dangerous driving behaviors,” officials said in a news release.
The H.E.A.T program aims to reduce DUI and speed-related crashes and educate residents about traffic safety.
In 2017, DeKalb police received $32,674.03 from the GOHS for similar efforts.
