The Governor’s Office of Highway Safety recognizes that Law Enforcement plays an extremely important role in overall highway safety in the state of Georgia. The Law Enforcement Services Division coordinates traffic enforcement mobilizations such as “Operation Zero Tolerance”, “Operation Southern Shield”, and “Click it or Ticket” which has proven that high visibility enforcement of Georgia’s traffic laws is the key to saving lives on Georgia’s roadways as well as interdicting the criminal element through traffic enforcement. GOHS law enforcement education and enforcement efforts are carried out through the Georgia State Patrol and 16 regional traffic enforcement networks that encompass all 159 counties in the state of Georgia. The networks meet monthly to provide information, training, and networking opportunities to the attending officers.
In an effort to communicate legislative updates, court decisions and other pertinent information to traffic enforcement officers across the state, the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety in partnership with Emory University has established an email list serv that all participating law enforcement officers can receive up to date traffic enforcement related information. Information is exchanged about traffic enforcement policies, legal updates, training opportunities, and other traffic enforcement related information.
