Southwind Plantation, GA 10-15-11
Law enforcement officers from all over south Georgia networked over dinner last night, October 14th, 2011.
The Decatur County Sheriff's Office hosted the Governor's Office of Highway Safety dinner at Southwind Plantation.
People attended the locally-sponsored event from 14 county agencies to talk about highway safety and the importance of wearing a seatbelt. Wiley Griffin with the Decatur County Sheriff's department said, "It's always good to understand how other people do their job, instead of reinventing the wheel. We come together to exchange ideas."
Also on hand was the Chairman of the Republican Party of Florida.
After the dinner, the officers conducted seat belt checks throughout their counties.
A recent poll by the Governor's Office of Highway Safety shows about 89 percent of Georgia drivers wear their seatbelt.
