2013 Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG)
The College Park Police Department has received notice that we are eligible to apply for the 2013 Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG).  The allotted portion for College Park is $23,902.00.  The JAG Program is the primary provider of federal criminal justice funding to state and local jurisdictions. JAG funds support all components of the criminal justice system, from multijurisdictional drug and gang task forces to crime prevention and domestic violence programs, courts, corrections, treatment, and justice information sharing initiatives. JAG-funded projects may address crime through the provision of services directly to individuals and/or communities and by improving the effectiveness and efficiency of criminal justice systems, processes, and procedures.

The Police Department would like to utilize this grant to add two PTZ video cameras to the current city wide Iron Sky system.  The additional cameras will expand our capabilities to areas not covered by current equipment.

If you have any questions regarding this Grant or the utilization of grant monies, please contact Officer C. Rogers, Office of Professional Standards, at 404-761-3131.  





Georgia Open Roads Policy

01 February 2012

PRESS RELEASE

On 01 February 2012, Chief Ron Fears of the College Park Police Department signed a resolution endorsing the GEORGIA OPEN ROADS POLICY as a practice of the Department. 


The Open Roads Policy was formulated by the Metro Atlanta Traffic Incident Management Enhancement (TIME) Task Force.  Signed by Governor Nathan Deal, the policy sets a goal that road and lane closures are kept to a minimum.  It also states that traffic incidents such as crashes and cargo spills should be cleared within ninety minutes.


Chief Fears stated, “Accomplishment of these goals will promote both safety and mobility on College Park’s roadways.  It is imperative that we do our part.”. 

Secondary crashes that occur during back-ups on the Interstate are a major cause of death and serious injuries to the motoring public and first responders.  Minimizing closures and reducing clearance times will reduce the likelihood of these secondary crashes.
