Georgia law enforcement officers, both local police and county sheriff's deputies, diligently patrol the streets to keep the community safe. While this service is clearly helpful, sometimes a Georgia resident may find him or herself in trouble with the law and charged with DUI as a result. Being arrested on DUI charges can be a traumatic and difficult experience for the accused, especially if one is not guilty of the crime charged.
Recently, a $38,000 grant was given to one Georgia sheriff's office for the purpose of reducing highway crashes, fatalities and injuries. The grant was made by the Governor's office. It is part of a statewide project called, H.E.A.T., which will be targeting the reduction of different driving violations like failing to wear a seatbelt and DUI.
