ATLANTA (October 6, 2017) | Sen. John Wilkinson (R – Toccoa) was recently recognized by the Peace Officers Association of Georgia (POAG) with an honorary lifetime membership for his dedication to public safety and support of peace officers across Georgia. POAG President Dennis Bell presented Sen. Wilkinson with the award.
“I am honored to be recognized by the Peace Officers Association of Georgia, an organization that is dedicated to connecting peace officers with resources and opportunities for personal growth and development,” said Sen. Wilkinson. “Peace officers don’t always get the recognition and support they deserve, but organizations like this help to provide them with a voice. Our peace officers are some of the hardest working people around the state and I look forward to supporting them in any way I can in the future.”
The POAG is the state’s oldest and largest law enforcement organization that includes local, state and federal officers of all ranks and duties. The mission of the Peace Officers Association of Georgia Foundation is to create a charitable means for individuals, organizations and corporations to donate funds, time and resources toward enhancement of the peace officer’s life, safety, education, job responsibilities and heritage.
