Sheriff R.L.”Butch” Conway and the Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Department have recently started a local chapter of Beat the Heat Inc. Beat the Heat is a non-profit national organization designed to educate young drivers on the dangers of street racing. Our goal is to go to local area high schools and talk to teenagers about the responsibilities of being a safe driver, the negative effects of drinking and driving, and the dangers of street racing.
We have a two vehicles:
· 1996 Chevy Impala SS with a 520 HP 502 Crate engine. This car was donated to our department by Buckshot Jones’s father, Billy Jones for our use in this program. It is quite the head turner.
· 2005 Suzuki GSXR 1000 Motorcycle
