Valdosta - Congressman Jack Kingston presented Lowndes County with the largest check ever received by the county's public safety department.

Captain Ken Gallager accepted a check for more than 1 million dollars in Homeland Security Grants.

The department was chosen by the Governor's office to prepare and respond to terror attacks and mass casualty incidents in Lowndes County, Dougherty County and other counties in Southwest Georgia.  "If the local community has shown the ability then they qualify for it. The Governor actually makes the decision but its federal money. W're making sure we're giving the first responders all the tools they need for Homeland Security Purposes," saus Congressman Kingston.

The money will be used to purchase a new truck and equipment, as well as to train the 77-man team it will take to run the anti-terror program.
