ALL IN A DAY'S WORK: METRO RECOVERS STOLEN GUNS, NARCOTICS

It is a great day in the Savannah-Chatham community. Members of Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan's Strategic Investigations and Gang Units arrested 2 suspects and recovered several stolen weapons and narcotics after focused surveillance of the Montgomery Street & W. 58th-61st Street area this afternoon.

One encounter with suspects led to a shots fired incident. No members of the community or SCMPD were injured.

Captain Gunther, Commander of SIU and the End Gun Violence Initiative, said, “I am relieved that no member of the community or the SCMPD was injured during the course of this incident. The SCMPD and the Savannah-Chatham community, in our shared responsibility relationship to address crime, must continue to be diligent and resilient. While working together, we will continue to produce positive outcomes, address quality of life issues, and ensure that our communities remain safe and secure”.

GRANTS TO BRING NEW OFFICERS AND CARS TO SCMPD

SAVANNAH, GA (December 4, 2016): The Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department is set to receive funding for 18 new officers and three new uniquely purposed cars through state and federal grants.

The U.S. Department of Community Oriented Policing Services’ 2016 COPS Hiring Program (CHP) will provide SCMPD with $1,875,000 in federal funds over a three-year period to hire 15 new officers, with a local match of $812,247.

Officers hired through the grant will enhance SCMPD’s existing community oriented policing initiatives. The COPS grant promotes the use of partnerships and problem solving techniques to proactively address conditions that lead to public safety issues such as crime, social disorder and fear of crime.

The Georgia Governor’s Office of Highway Safety’s has also awarded the SCMPD a H.E.A.T. grant, which stands for Highway Enforcement of Aggressive Traffic. The $249,975 grant will fund two traffic officer positions and two new vehicles for SCMPD’s Traffic Unit. SCMPD will purchase a third matching vehicle and hire a third officer. The three vehicles will be fitted with H.E.A.T. logos and dedicated solely to SCMPD’s implementation of the H.E.A.T. initiative.

The H.E.A.T. initiative has a focus on intensified traffic safety and enforcement. Officers assigned to the H.E.A.T. Unit will partner with neighboring police jurisdictions and community organizations in providing traffic safety education programs for citizens. These officers will also carry out local implementation of national highway safety campaigns such as “Click-It or Ticket” and “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over”. SCMPD’s H.E.A.T. Unit also will have a focus on apprehending impaired drivers and speeders which will lower motor vehicle accidents.

“I am very pleased with the time and effort SCMPD personnel devoted to procuring these grants,” said SCMPD Chief Joseph H. Lumpkin, Sr. “I am even more pleased with the fact that these funds will allow us to expand SCMPD resources, services and officers protecting our citizens -- with a minimal cost to local taxpayers.”

Implementation actions for both grants will start by early 2017.
