The Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office in partnership with the Kanawha County Commission, Kanawha Board of Education, Kanawha County Emergency Ambulance Authority, Metro 911 and Law Enforcement Agencies in Kanawha County are happy to announce the kickoff of the 9th Annual “Operation Graduation Prom Alive” on Friday, March 28, 2014 at 10:00 with a Press Conference at Kanawha Metro Communications.
Each season for the past eight years, the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office has coordinated Operation GPA in an effort to strategically place police officers around the county by attending both Prom and Graduation Ceremonies and patrolling post-event gatherings to help ensure the safety of our children. Operation GPA is an “Aggressive-High Visibility- Zero Tolerance” Program that targets persons who choose to drive under the influence and/or any person illegally using alcohol, drugs or prescription medication.
These extra patrols are made possible by the Kanawha County Commission and funds from the Public Safety Levy in the amount of $15,000.00 to pay officers.
***All money comes from the Public Safety Levy.***
