2019 marks the celebrated 20th anniversary of the Georgia Governor's Challenge, an annual banquet hosted by the Governor's Office of Highway Safety. The awards program recognizes statewide law enforcement agencies in nine different categories based on department size, as well as in several other specialty categories. Governor's Challenge is designed to highlight outstanding achievements in highway safety enforcement and education. It recognizes agencies for the approach and effectiveness of their overall highway safety programs. Agencies are evaluated not just for enforcement initiatives, but for innovative problem-solving in their communities, using public information activities and creating departmental policies that support their traffic enforcement campaign efforts. This year Crisp County Sheriff’s Office received 3rd Place Governor’s Challenge Category 4, the Rookie Award, and the Bicycle/Pedestrian Safety Award.
Today Crisp County Sheriff’s Office received 3rd Place Governor’s Challenge Category 4 Award, the Rookie Award, and the Bicycle/Pedestrian Safety Award at the Annual Georgia Governor’s Challenge Banquet. We are proud of the men and women in this agency whose hard work and dedication to the citizens put us in a position to be recognized on a state level. We want to thank the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety as well as Governor Brian Kemp for this program.
