What an exciting day for the faculty, staff and students at Banks County High School! Not only did they receive a visit from Tony Schumacher’s crew and dragster, driver Antron Brown also stopped by. Thank you Mr. Brown for speaking to the students about making good choices in their life and future. It was a great presentation enjoyed by all!

We had to have a little impromptu speed citation fun with Antron. No hard feelings!

UPDATE – It was a great night for Prom! We actually had 0 traffic crashes reported from 6 pm until 6 am. This is almost unheard of for our patrol.

Thank GOD for keeping our youth safe!

Prom night! We will be out in full force! Be a little extra cautious tonight as a lot of new drivers will be on the roadway. Help our young people have one of the greatest nights of their lives. We love our Banks County youth. See something, call 911.

Our deputies had a wonderful visit with Homer Baptist preschoolers yesterday afternoon. We had a great time talking with them about making safe choices. We have already received a report from one preschool parent who states they were scolded by their child on touching their cellphone while driving. What a great way to prevent distracted driving!

Thank you HBP for inviting us. It was a bright addition to our morning shift!
