MILLEDGEVILLE, Georgia (WMGT/41NBC) – The Milledgeville Police Department’s Specialized Patrol Unit (SPU) is receiving a $4,600 community grant from Washington EMC’s Operation Round Up program.
Operation Round Up is a community development program funded by the voluntary contributions of Washington EMC customers to the Washington Electric Foundation.
Contributions are made to the foundation when participants elect to have their monthly electric bill rounded up to the next dollar. Charitable donations are made by the foundation to worthy projects and needs within the ten-county Washington EMC service area.
The Specialized Patrol Unit has educated various civic organizations, schools, and businesses throughout the community since 2016.
SPU was established to place more focus on community policing, crime suppression, traffic and concentrated patrol, in an effort to establish a stronger relationship between the community and law enforcement.
