The Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office, through a grant from the Governor’s Highway Safety Program, recently purchased a new speed-monitoring trailer.

The Sheriff's Office contacted Leland Police Department Chief Osey Sanders, Brunswick County coordinator for the Governor’s Highway Safety Program, for assistance after the previous speed-monitoring unit was deemed inoperable after 10 years of service, according to a press release.

The new speed-monitoring trailer will be used in high traffic areas as well as in school zones throughout Brunswick County, the release states.

After contacting Sanders and designating sheriff’s office Lt. Brian Sanders as project coordinator, the two joined forces to obtain the necessary funding and assistance from the Governor’s Highway Safety Program for the trailer, according to the release. According to the release, the grant was for $11,630.

“It was a pleasure working with Chief Sanders and the staff of the Governors Highway Safety Program,” Lt. Sanders said.

“Traffic safety is an integral part of law enforcement and saves lives on our highways,” according to Chief Sanders and Sheriff Ronald E. Hewett.
