Gray Receives DonationRockdale Career Academy's Public Safety Academy gets new wheels!
Sheriff Eric J. Levett and the Rockdale County Sheriff's Office (RCSO) donated a reserve Crown Victoria patrol unit to the Rockdale Career Academy's Public Safety Academy. The program is a three-year program, covering the areas of law enforcement, corrections, security, and other public safety professions. 
The vehicle donated will be used for various training and instruction in law enforcement and tactics used by law enforcement in the course of their duties. Instructor J S Gray says the unmarked patrol unit will serve as a vital tool in instructing students on effective traffic stops and patrol techniques. Mr. Gray works closely with the Rockdale County Sheriff's Office in providing a quality education to those Rockdale County students who show great interest in a public safety career. Sheriff Levett has hired several former students who completed the Public Safety Academy at Rockdale Career Academy. Students who complete the program and pass the national exam, receive a certificate of completion from a certified public safety course and could be eligible for college credits.
The RCSO donated patrol unit joins the fleet along with a patrol unit donated by Conyers Police Department in 2018.
