The Calhoun Police Department announced this week that they are the recipients of a $24,091.04 traffic enforcement grant from the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety.

The funds were awarded in recognition of the department’s lifesaving work as the coordinating agency of GOHS’s TEN Mountain Area Traffic Enforcement Network.

Along with Gordon, the TEN Mountain Area Traffic Enforcement Network includes law enforcement agencies in nine other counties including Dade, Whitfield, Catoosa, Walker, Murray, Chattooga, Floyd, Bartow, and Polk.

“The Calhoun Police Department’s Traffic Enforcement Officers are diligent in their efforts to make the streets of Calhoun and Gordon County safe for our motorist and pedestrians,” Chief Tony Pyle said. “The grant funds awarded our agency will be very beneficial in the ongoing efforts to keep our Georgia streets safe here in Gordon County and Calhoun.”
