Georgia Board of Public Safety to hold public meeting in Statesboro Oct. 11
Georgia Southern University will host a meeting of the Georgia Board of Public Safety on Thursday, Oct. 11, beginning at 1:30 p.m. The meeting will take place in the Nessmith-Lane Continuing Education Building, corner of Plant and Chandler Roads, in Statesboro. It is open to any member of the public.
‘By holding its meetings in communities around the state, the public can learn more about the activities of the three agencies overseen by the Board of Public Safety,” said Ken Brown, director of Public Safety at Georgia Southern and host for the meeting. The three agencies reporting to the board are the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI), the Georgia State Patrol, and the Public Safety Training Center in Forsyth.
Ellis Wood of Statesboro, a new member of the Georgia Board of Public Safety, will be on hand for the meeting. Statesboro’s mayor and other city officials and Bulloch County officials have been invited to attend.
Following the meeting in Statesboro, board members will travel to Glenville to take part in a Firefighter Appreciation Cookout that begins at 5 p.m. The event will honor not only the firefighters, but all agencies involved in fighting this summer’s devastating fire in Ware County. At the cookout, Board of Public Safety Vice Chair James Donald, commissioner of the Department of Corrections, will acknowledge the many inmates who participated in fighting the Ware County fire.
