Georgia Governor's Challenge


The Governor’s Office of Highway Safety hosts the annual Governor’s Challenge Awards banquet to recognize law enforcement agencies of all sizes across the state in seven different categories based on department size as well as several other specialty categories.

The awards program was designed to award outstanding achievements in highway safety enforcement and education. They recognize agencies for the approach and effectiveness of their overall highway safety programs. Agencies are evaluated not just for enforcement initiatives, but for innovating problem-solving in their communities, using public information activities and creating departmental policies that support their traffic enforcement campaign efforts.

“For more than a decade, we’ve been rewarding those law enforcement agencies who, no matter their size, do their very best and more to keep their roads and highways as safe as possible for their community,” said GOHS Law Enforcement Services Director Powell Harrelson. “Every year, we look forward to recognizing our Governor’s Challenge winners for their continued dedication to highway safety.”
