College Park, GA Seeks to Advance Community Safety

Police Chief Will Williford has advanced a plan to have the Safe America Foundation train 90 police officers to improve their driving skills. The plan: use computer simulators and test how to avoid car crashes in extremely fast situations.

Safe America will meet next Monday (July 15) with College Park City Council – which is located near the Atlanta International Airport – to consider ways to work together. Under consideration: offer training to police officers and then teach them to be ‘teen instructors’ for students in the South Atlanta suburbs (College Park, East Point, Hapeville, South Fulton and neighboring areas).

“We’re proud of Police Chief Williford for his dedication to improving safety,” noted Safe America President & CEO Len Pagano. “We look forward to developing this new initiative – making College Park a ‘model’ of safety for all Georgia communities as well as all cities and towns across the U.S.

Safe America will also look to involve College Park in fall events such as the December 9 ‘Fall Forum’ at the Federal Reserve Bank in Atlanta. The Foundation will also look to engage police and fire officers in the HUMANS Care ‘rescue’ program against human trafficking victims… and making College Park a ‘hub’ for providing ‘Vet Tran’ / veterans transportation to VA hospitals and clinics.

More to come soon… Stay tuned!!
