Dunwoody Police Chief Billy Grogan to Represent Georgia Abroad

Grogan will be a part of the final leg of the torch run for the 2013 Special Olympics in South Korea.

Dunwoody Police Chief Billy Grogan has been selected to run the final leg of a torch run at the 2013 Special Olympic Games in South Korea.

Grogran will be representing Georgia law enforcement organizations when he goes to PyeongChang, Korea to participate in the run.

The Dunwoody Police Department has been operating for close to 4 years and has raised nearly $51,300 for Special Olympics Georgia.

Grogan has participated in the Law Enforcement Torch Run for 10 years and is a past director of the Georgia Law Enforcement Torch Run program, which happens every two years.

Law enforcement is the biggest supporter of Special Olympics, raising $42.6 million for Special Olympics Programs around the world.

Grogan will travel to Korea on January 20, 2013 to begin runing the torch, which raises awareness for Special Olympics and the Winter Games. He'll return at the beginning of February.

The hawk? Rob, you confuse me with the legendary GRB of Dunwoody North fame. I was taught to allow nature to run its course, and said hawk would be worm food by now if it were found on my property. Regarding Chief, with such high crime and and alleged shortage of police personnel can we afford (not just talking financially) to have Chief go to Korea?

I forgot to mention the trip is ten days in length. Jason, can you ask city about this expense at next press conference?
