The Police Department was presented with a re-accreditation award from the Georgia Association of Chiefs of Police during the August 18 City Council meeting.
Fayetteville Police Department earns and maintains state accreditation, now working toward national accreditation The Fayetteville Police Department on August 19 was publicly presented with its 2021 state certification award from the Georgia Association of Chiefs of Police during the Fayetteville City Council meeting. State Certification Coordinator Chuck Groover presented a plaque and a challenge coin to Police Chief Scott Gray as well as a challenge coin to former Fayetteville Police Accreditation Manager Ann Marie Burdett. Upon completing the reaccreditation process earlier this summer, Burdett was promoted within the City of Fayetteville to the role of Director of Communications and Public Information. Police Officer David Cagle transitioned into the accreditation manager role during the final weeks of the 2021 re-accreditation process. Peachtree City Police Chief Janet Moon was also at the City Council meeting representing the Georgia Association of Chiefs of Police as its
new President, having been elected by her peers to the role during the annual conference this summer. Moon emphatically promoted the benefits of being not only state accredited but also nationally certified. She noted that among the approximately 600 law enforcement agencies in the State of Georgia, only about 140 are state accredited. She said only 736 of the nation’s 18,000 law enforcement agencies are nationally accredited. “It is something that is very important,” Chief Moon told council members. “It means that your department has voluntarily opened itself up for scrutiny. They’re following the contemporary best practice standards that are out there.” Chief Moon congratulated the Fayetteville Police Department for not only earning re-accreditation on the state level but also for beginning the process of earning national accreditation through The Commission on Accreditation

for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA). She said she is personally encouraging all law enforcement agencies in Fayette County to seek and achieve a unified level of accreditation, which she said would enhance agencies’ ability to collaborate and support one another. “We believe the Fayetteville Police Department is the best police department in the entire United States of America,” said Mayor Ed Johnson. “I know from the years that I’ve been here that Chief Gray has made a tremendous impact. Ms. Ann Marie has done her due diligence in helping us with accreditation, and I know Officer Cagle is just going to jump right in and continue to do the outstanding job, especially now that we’ve raised the bar a little higher to the CALEA certification. “We’re proud of our officers for raising the standard and keeping the citizens of Fayetteville safe,” Mayor Johnson said.

There’s nothing like outdoor grilling. It’s one of the most popular ways to cook food. But, a grill placed too close to anything that can burn is a fire hazard. They can be very hot, causing burn injuries. Follow these simple tips and you will be on the way to safe grilling. SAFETY TIPS
KKK Propane and charcoal BBQ grills should only be used outdoors.
KKK The grill should be placed well away from the home, deck railings and out from under eaves and overhanging branches. KKK Keep children and pets at least three feet away from the grill area.
KKK Keep your grill clean by removing grease or fat buildup from the grills and in trays below the grill. KKK Never leave your grill unattended.
KKK Always make sure your gas grill lid is open before lighting it.
KKK There are several ways to get the charcoal ready to use. Charcoal chimney starters allow you to start the charcoal using newspaper as a fuel. KKK If you use a starter fluid, use only charcoal starter fluid. Never add charcoal fluid or any other flammable liquids to the fire.
KKK Keep charcoal fluid out of the reach of children and away from heat sources. KKK There are also electric charcoal starters, which do not use fire. Be sure to use an extension cord for outdoor use.
KKK When you are finished grilling, let the coals completely cool before disposing in a metal container. NATIONAL FIRE PROTECTION ASSOCIATION The leading information and knowledge resource on fire, electrical and related hazards

Check the gas tank hose for leaks before using it for the first time each year. Apply a light soap and water solution to the hose. A propane leak will release bubbles. If your grill has a gas leak, by smell or the soapy bubble test, and there is no flame, turn off both the gas tank and the grill. If the leak stops, get the grill serviced by a professional before using it again. If the leak does not stop, call the fire department. If you smell gas while cooking, immediately get away from the grill and call the fire department. Do not move the grill. If the flame goes out, turn the grill and gas off and wait at least 5 minutes before re-lighting it.

FACTS July is the peak month for grill fires. Roughly half of the injuries involving grills are thermal burns.
