The Gainesville Police Department is proud to announce Lieutenant Andy Smith as the most recent graduate of the FBI National Academy Program at Quantico, Virginia. Lieutenant Smith is among two hundred and twenty-three law enforcement officers that graduated on March 16, 2018 from the FBI National Academy Program at Quantico, Virginia. The 271st Session of the National Academy consisted of men and women from 48 states. Included in the class are members of law enforcement agencies from the District of Columbia, 18 international counties, five military organizations and five federal civilian organizations. Internationally known for its academic excellence, the National Academy Program, held at the FBI Academy, offers ten weeks of advanced communication, leadership and fitness training for selected officers having proven records as professionals within their agency. On average, these officers have 21 years of law enforcement experience and usually return to their agencies to serve in executive-level positions. Training for the program is provided by the FBI Academy instructional staff, Special Agents, and other staff members holding advanced degrees, many of whom are recognized internationally in their fields of expertise. We are proud of Lieutenant Smith and his accomplishment.

The Gainesville Police Department and Hall County Sheriff's Office partnered to conduct a St. Patrick’s Day safety detail on Saturday, March 17, 2018. Beginning early in the week we began a social media safety campaign leading up to St. Patrick’s Day. The message was to PINCH out drunk, aggressive and distracted driving. PINCH stands for Proactively Impacting Numerous Crash Hotspots. Officers from both agencies supported by the Georgia Governor’s Office of Highway Safety deployed to high crash areas in Gainesville/Hall County. During the operation officers made 216 contacts with drivers during the 12 hour campaign. The combined efforts resulted in 17 DUI arrests, 63 speeding citations, 16 distracted driving citations, and 73 seatbelt citations. Additionally, officers made 47 miscellaneous contacts. Those include: child safety violations, drug arrests, suspended license and other violations of Georgia law. In an effort to reduce crashes, injuries and fatalities we will continue these types of safety operations. We will continue to work together to ensure the roadways of Gainesville/Hall County are the safest in the state. #gohs #arrivealive
