Bibb County Sheriff’s Office receives $54k grant for H.E.A.T.
MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – The Bibb County Sheriff’s Office is preparing for H.E.A.T.
The county received nearly $54,000 from the state, renewing their grant and continuing the program.
H.E.A.T., or highway enforcement of aggressive traffic, helps officers protect people from aggressive and impaired drivers.
“It has helped. It has reduced. It has gotten the message out a little bit better where people are a little more aware that there is some aggressive enforcement out there looking for those type violations that cause serious injuries,” Captain Brad Wolfe, with the sheriff’s office, said.
Wolfe says the sheriff’s office has been part of the program for nine years.
He says they may use the money to bring on another officer or for educational programs to help keep drivers safe.
