Traffic Networks

The Governor's Office of Highway Safety (GOHS) in cooperation with state and local law enforcement agencies has organized regional Traffic Enforcement Networks around the State of Georgia. There are currently sixteen regional traffic enforcement networks servicing all 159 counties in Georgia. The regional networks are open to all sworn law enforcement officers and prosecutors and are designed to enhance traffic enforcement activities through networking, training and legislation. The networks serve as a catalyst for traffic enforcement officers to voice their concerns and share ideas with their counterparts from other agencies in their region. Guest speakers and panelists have included state and municipal court judges, prosecutors, legislators, MADD representatives, Public Service Commission, and ALS judges.

The "Thin Blue Line" is the internationally recognized phrase that symbolizes the law enforcement profession. The blue line represents each of you who daily protect this nation. The black background was designed as a constant reminder of our fallen brother and sister officers.
