MGSU and BSO partner to fight crime, need public's assistance
MACON, Ga. -- Middle Georgia State University is using knowledge to fight crime.
The university's psychology, sociology and criminal justice departments have been awarded a $200,000 grant for Project Safe Neighborhoods.
The grant is for social scientists to conduct research and give the data to local task forces within the Bibb County Sheriff's Office. Once that data is turned over, deputies can use it in targeted hot spots.
Now the program needs the public's assistance.
Middle Georgia State and the Bibb County Sheriff's Office will co-host an information session on Thursday, Dec. 7 from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m. in room 231 in the teacher education building.
