VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - Get ready to see more police patrols in one south Georgia City.

Senator Saxby Chambliss presented a $137,100 grant to the City of Remerton Thursday afternoon.

The money, part of a USDA Rural Development grant, will buy the city four new police cruisers and three defibrillators for the cars.

It's equipment the small city otherwise wouldn't be able to afford. 

"Its a small community that doesn't have a large tax base but its just as important to provide safety and security for the citizens of Remerton and be able to provide emergency services on a daily basis as it is in any metropolitan city," Senator Chambliss says.

"Police officers are first responders. We get on scene first so to have that equipment available to us is definitely going to save lives," adds Remerton Police Chief Mike Terrell.

In all, USDA will present $36 million worth of grants to rural areas in Georgia.
