Highland County Sheriff Donnie Barrera will accept the keys to both a police cruiser and to space for a new Sheriff’s Substation at Rocky Fork Lake on Thursday, Feb. 16 at 10 a.m. at Rockhold-Brown Bank’s Northshore Drive location.
As reported by The Times-Gazette last week, the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office is donating a cruiser to be used to patrol the lake area as part of the Rocky Fork Lake Area Safety and Advancement Project (RFL-ASAP).
“Thanks to generous donations by the Fayette County Sheriff’s Department and Rockhold-Brown Bank, we now have additional tools to address hot spot crime in the Rocky Fork Lake community,” said LuAnn Winkle, RFL-ASAP site coordinator in a press release. “These tools will have a measurable impact on reducing crime and improving the quality of life of Rocky Fork Lake residents.”
The lake project is funded through a grant awarded to the Board of Highland County Commissioners from the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance.
The public is invited to attend the key exchange event.
