The Rome Police Department was honored at the banquet receiving the following awards: 1st place in category 5, 1st place in the Northwest GA Region, and 1st place in child seat safety. The Floyd County Police department won 3rd place for category 5 statewide. The Calhoun Police Department was also honored at the banquet with 1st place in category 7, speed protection, and occupant protection awards.
